Volunteering Week 2016
In Celebration of You!
Our trusted volunteers
Come to help from far and near
In the mornings
In the afternoons – hooray!
Covering advice and on reception,
They challenge misconceptions
Of disability and worth
Of poverty and dignity
Of age and health and work
Our amazing volunteers
Look up benefits and grants
Give out vouchers, work with plants!
Type out forms and charts and letters
Changing clients’ lives for better
Our stalwart volunteers
Stack up years without a boast
Put up pictures, signs and post(-ers)
Allaying clients’ fears – listening, laughing, wiping tears
Our remarkable volunteers –
Work with vigour, strength
In admin, they have clerical appeal
Typing neatly, scanning sweetly
Collating and creating
When old data needs updating
Just being there for all of us
Inspiring courage, care and trust
Making the impossible, somehow achievable
Their duties never shirked –
They are why I come to work
The back bone of our service, they remind us of our purpose
Three cheers, three cheers!
For our Top Drawer Volunteers!
