We run four Events every year to say a big thankyou to our fantastic volunteers.

All of our Befriending and Carer Respite Service clients are also invited to these events, providing another opportunity to get out and about and socialise, with a chat, a cup of tea and some delicious homemade cakes. We also run a number of other events throughout the year, so please do return to this page for information.
