At the annual fun-filled celebration of volunteers we announced the grand total of 14,317 hours of volunteering given by the team last year. And the plans are to grow and deepen the work through new stores and new programmes.

Thanks to all the volunteers who work so hard throughout the year – enjoy your custom Shared Space mug to celebrate all that has been achieved.

Seventy of you came to the celebration on Friday night at Clarence Road Baptist Church hall.  We told stories of lives changed: both the lives of volunteers and others through the Boost Fund Grant programme which continues to give out grant after grant – we ate an epic meal thanks to the caterers, and we celebrated and danced. And the evening was our AGM but it was fun!

And we must thank the Juke Box Junkies band for again providing great music and for doing it for free to support our volunteers – you got the dancing started!

And one more thanks – to Church from Scratch and Belle Vue Baptist Church for partnering with us.

Please pray for this work – that we would see more people helped through the Boost Fund Grants and through volunteering with us. Could that be you?
