Celebration of Volunteering 11 October 2018

Representatives from a wide range of voluntary groups were invited to the Mayor’s Chamber in the Basingstoke Civic Offices on 11 October. The event celebrated the valuable contributions that volunteers make by supporting many different good causes.

Our Group was asked to nominate two volunteers. We chose Brenda and Fred Clarke and they met the Mayor, Councillor Sean Keating, who said that he was looking forward to coming along to the Group’s awareness event on 3 November in The Malls Shopping Centre, Basingstoke.

Brenda said “It was a lovely afternoon. Fred and I felt honoured to have been chosen.”

Alan Instone, our Group’s Chairman, was also present.

Brenda and Fred are longstanding members of the Group. They have always helped out with many of the behind the scenes tasks that are necessary to run our meetings. In particular, the success of the monthly raffle is down to their hard work as well, of course, to the generosity of the Members who kindly donate prizes.

The funds raised from the raffle make sure that our finances are in a healthy state so that the Treasurer is able to sleep at night.
