Celebration for Volunteers' Week

The Bridge Homelessness to Hope celebrates volunteers in honour of Volunteers' Week 2024.

Volunteers who give up their time to support The Bridge's services were celebrated on 8th June as part of the charity's Volunteers' Week.

18 volunteers gathered in The Bridge hall over the weekend to enjoy an afternoon tea spread of cakes, sandwiches, scones and tea. They were also gifted with a thank you Amazon voucher and certificate for all their hard work and support over the past year.

“Helping people in need without expectation of anything in return is one of the most fulfilling things we can do. I turn up, I help, we smile, we share a moment in each others’ day. That’s it. It’s genuinely one of the best things I do each week.”

Julie, Volunteer at The Bridge Homelessness Hope

The Bridge has over 70 volunteers who help the charity to run the wide of services every single week. From preparing and cooking meals for the many guests, to working on reception and supporting the creative sessions such as Art & Crafts and Music, volunteers at The Bridge dedicate over 5000 hours of their time each year to support those in the city who are experiencing homelessness.

"We're delighted to celebrate our amazing volunteers, who so kindly dedicate their time, skills and efforts to The Bridge. On Saturday 8th of June, we held an afternoon tea, where our volunteers enjoyed nice food and music, and got to know each other a bit better. It was lovely being able to recognise and reward them. We cannot thank them enough for everything they do!"

Evie, Volunteer Coordiantor at The Bridge Homelessness Hope
