Celebrations at the Centre
Our SUPER volunteers came to our “SOUPER” celebration on Friday 14th for our fantastic volunteers which coincided with National Volunteers week.
The volunteers came for a light lunch of homemade vegetable soup followed by a fabulous selection of cakes and were presented with their certificates of appreciation.
Volunteers help in the cafe, office and library as well as helping people use computers and now with helping to develop our growing area.
