Big Thank You Volunteers’ Lunch

Posted by: admin on June,14th,2016

We are so grateful to the dozens of hardworking and enthusiastic people who give their time each week in support of the work of Bridge Renewal Trust. Last Saturday, 11th June 2016, we celebrated our volunteers by hosting ‘The Big Thank You Volunteers’ Lunch’ where staff rolled up their sleeves to work alongside volunteers to prepare a celebratory meal.

The event, held at the Community Hut, was a huge success with more than 50 volunteers attending the event. Volunteers served up a delicious and healthy meal that was enjoyed by everyone. Rachel Hughes, Chair of Trustees thanked all the volunteers for their time, dedication and invaluable contributions given to support their local communities.

Volunteer Gardener/Caretaker, Irol Brown said “Thank you for recognising the volunteering work that I do at the Bridge Renewal Trust. It has been a great pleasure working alongside management, staff and volunteers who have all shown me a lot of love and togetherness.  It’s been a joy to have met so many wonderful people.  I have been volunteering since December 2015 and have gained experience and developed my skills.  It’s been a wonderful experience and I am grateful for the support I’ve received.  I feel that I have been part of the team forever and I am looking forward to the months ahead.”

Duty Manager Volunteer, Nigel Dinnal was introduced to volunteering when he participated on the Tottenham Talking project. He was at a loose end when the project finished and so was excited when he was given an opportunity to volunteer at the Community Café, as he is passionate about cooking.  Nigel, who enjoys volunteering at the Community Hut said, “it gives me a chance to meet new people and gets me out of the house and I am learning new ways to prepare and cook food from people of other cultures”.  Volunteering has helped Nigel to build his confidence and he now feels ready to seek paid employment and hopes to develop a career in the catering and hospitality industry.”
