It was great to see so many of our fantastic volunteers at the Cumberland Hotel in Eastbourne on Thursday evening, for our volunteer thank you event. This is the second year we have hosted the volunteer thank you in Eastbourne, and it is a very humbling experience to see how many people have given the gift of their time and put their Hands Up! to help us.
I spent an enjoyable couple of hours chatting to the volunteers and hearing about their different experiences. Some had helped out at the Night to Remember midnight walk, some volunteers help out at our shops in Eastbourne, Seaford and Uckfield and some with our fundraising events and collection tins.
The best thing about it was that every one of the volunteers enjoys being a part of the Chestnut Tree family, and knows that the help that they give means so much to us. Without them we simply wouldn’t be able to continue to offer our care services to the children and families that need us.
I would like to take this opportunity to say another big thank you to each and every one of our volunteers – you are all very special.
