Care for the elderly in Northumberland.

#VolunteersWeek at Charlotte Straker House

By 3rd June, 2020 News Comments Off

This week is Volunteers Week 2020 and we are sending our appreciation and love to ALL our volunteers, to those who have worked with us for a while and who have recently joined us during the pandemic.

Over the past year our volunteers have helped with the shop trolley, befriending phone calls, outdoor gardening, music activities, weekly reading and games afternoons, helping us to fundraise and providing regular companionship to our residents.

Our dedicated volunteers are a major strength of the Charlotte Straker Project. Without their contribution of time and energy, our organisation would not have become such a vital resource for our surrounding community during this difficult time.

This week is a chance for the trustees, staff and residents to thank our volunteers for sharing their skills and for the positive impact they make on our residents’ lives.

We are genuinely grateful for the energy, enthusiasm and dedication they bring to their roles as volunteers and the fact they make our overall mission of “care according to need” that much easier to achieve.
