TIME TO SAY THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS!
Crossroads Fife celebrates and thanks our Volunteer Befrienders for their kindness, time and dedication in helping the people who need us most. Thank you to our volunteers for going the extra mile supporting vulnerable people during the lockdown by phone or shop-drops. During Volunteers’ Week from 1-7 June, we want to honour the power of volunteering and their incredible impact. The coronavirus pandemic has raised the profile of volunteering and the immense contribution being made every single day by volunteers.
Crossroads Fife is a local Scottish charity who is proud to have provided quality care and dependable support to people in Fife for over 25 years. Our Befriending service provided by Volunteers complements the Respite, Palliative and Purchased Services delivered by Support Staff. All of our services enable carers and vulnerable adults to have a break by relying on our highly trained staff and volunteers.
Our valuable volunteers make an enormous contribution to individual’s lives, families and communities throughout Scotland. With over 1.2 million people involved in formal volunteering, they contribute more than £2 billion to the Scottish economy every year. Volunteer Nancy, said ‘I’ve been volunteering with Crossroads for a couple of years and befriending has become such an important and wonderful part of my life which my befriendee and I both treasure’.
Crossroads Fife Chair, Murray Grubb said ‘The pandemic has changed the landscape so taking the time to thank our volunteers for their critical contribution and connection to the most vulnerable in our society is essential. We celebrate our volunteers and look forward to their full return.’
So, if you’re up to volunteering and helping someone feel more connected and less socially isolated and lonely, we’d love to hear from you: email@example.com, 01592 630253. ick here to edit.
