What a difference a volunteer makes!

11 October 2021

I think that everyone would agree that 2020 and 2021 have been turbulent years.  The global pandemic has been an event that will leave a lasting mark on our society, but during the troubled times, people’s kindness has been a shining light in the midst of all the darkness.  Here are some of the things that people have told us about their experience of volunteers during the last two years.

What clients said about the volunteers who helped them

“The relief is just … I have no words.”

“You cannot appreciate how much your care means to me.”

“I think it’s wonderful that people are prepared to volunteer to do this for us.”

“I am incredibly lonely, I am just very grateful to have you at the end of the phone.”

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can’t put into words how grateful I am.”

“God love her heart, she’s an angel, thank you One Community”

“You are like the sunshine in my life.”

What a difference one volunteer can make!
