Today we gathered staff and clients in the music room for a special celebration.
Judith, the HS4LC centre manager presented an award and flowers to Jess, one of our amazing HS4LC volunteers. The award was for HS4LC outstanding volunteer.
Jess has volunteered at HS4LC for 6 years and was even nominated for three of the Harrogate District Volunteering Oscars due to her amazing volunteering efforts at not only HS4LC but at Harrogate Hospital, Barnardos and Harrogate and Ripon CVS.
We wanted to show Jess how much we appreciate her longstanding commitment to volunteering at Harrogate Skills for Living Centre.
Jess shed happy tears when she was presented with the award and said she was "very happy and surprised to receive it."
Jess has volunteered at the centre for the last 6 years and says she finds volunteering at HS4LC "very rewarding and enjoys been around the people." Jess helps in the different classes on the days she volunteers and has a great relationship with all the staff and clients.
Our CEO, Hadyn said: " Jess is an absolute superstar volunteer – she is brilliant supporting and caring for our beneficiaries and her level of commitment is second to none – we can’t thank her enough and hope she’ll continue for another 6 years (at least!)."
Thank you Jess and congratulations on your HS4LC outstanding volunteer award!
