Anchor House celebrates Volunteers' Week 2013

4th June 2013

Volunteers' Week 2013 runs from 1st – 7th June, and this year’s special focus is on saying ‘Thank you’ to all the volunteers who regularly get involved and help their community.

Here at Anchor House, we have a thriving volunteering programme that covers a wide range of activities including street fundraising, construction work, painting and decorating, catering and helping with events. These opportunities give residents the chance to gain great experience and also develop new skills that are attractive to prospective employers. Just last year, our residents took part in over 2000 volunteering opportunities and we hope this will increase even more this year, with the introduction of our new Time Bank.

Anchor House also receives visits from local companies, who often host skills workshops and offer coaching sessions for residents. In May we received a visit from an enthusiastic group of volunteers from BioMed Central, who held a CV workshop and afternoon BBQ, which proved very popular.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone who gives up their time to make a difference at Anchor House. We couldn’t do it without you!
