Volunteer Stories

1-8 June 2017 was volunteers week. Last year, we celebrated 10 years of formal volunteering in our homes and in 2017, volunteering teams across Brendoncare continue to thrive. Thank you to all our volunteers who bring something special to our organisation and to the lives of the people living in our homes and attending our clubs. Thank you for everything you do.

Carole Sawyers, Chief Executive, Brendoncare

“In our clubs, care homes and in our central office, volunteers contribute their skill and experience helping to enhance the lives of club members and residents. We are deeply grateful for their energy, enthusiasm and commitment.” 
Carole Sawyers, Chief Executive.
