Our final story for Volunteers’ Week is here and there’s a slight twist. Though Pete works for friends of R2R (and the new Royal couple), Surfers Against Sewage, a large part of his nomination covered his work with volunteers. Also, it’s World Oceans Day – the perfect time to celebrate Pete, SAS and their inspiring mission.
Volunteers’ Week is rolling on and here we are with another story to celebrate the Hidden Heroes making a difference where it’s needed most. Today, it’s the turn of Emma from Mosaic – an amazing charity that supports bereaved children.
Time for the third instalment of our inspiring stories for Volunteers’ Week – and it’s a good one! Daphne and Charles are long-term volunteers at Help & Care, carrying out a number of roles and making a vital difference to countless people when they need it most. Enjoy their story below.
Next up on our list of inspirational volunteering stories in honour of Volunteers’ Week is Lisa. Appropriately, Lisa was nominated by SCOPE as part of our Outstanding Volunteer initiative towards the end of last year. It’s easy to see why.
All through Volunteers’ Week, we are going to be sharing just some of the 230+ nominations we have received from our charity partners celebrating and saying ‘thank you’ to their inspirational Hidden Heroes. First up, it’s Stuart from our great friends Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
Cycle…Swim…Run…Rest – We are delighted to announce a major, major fundraising initiative for 2018! R2R Marketing Manager Joe, along with 11 other brave/foolish souls, will be taking on the inaugural cross-Solent triathlon to raise money for both R2R and our good friends Aspire – an amazing charity who support people with spinal injuries.
You can’t keep us off the airwaves! Hot on the heels of our chat with Hope FM, Adam and Joe appeared on the breakfast show on BBC Radio Solent to talk charities, volunteering and all things R2R!
We were delighted to be welcomed onto the awesome Debbie Marshall’s Monday morning show on Hope FM this week. The lovely Adrienne from our good friends The Dorset Children’s Foundation also came along for a good long chat about them, us, volunteering and making a difference.
Brian Clough, Robin Hood, Rebecca Adlington… Nottingham has seen its fair share of heroes over the years. On Tuesday 20th March, we had the pleasure of being in the company of a few more as we attended the Nottingham Post Carer of the Year Awards.
It’s the 1st of March 2018. Christmas is long gone. The weather is miserable. Storm Emma is about to hit. Reasons to be cheerful are few and far between. Then, it happens. The R2R inboxes bleep and the impending meteorological doom is forgotten (until we try to get home!). A new nomination has arrived – and it’s the 200th!
