Celebrating volunteers at Tintern Old Station

MONLIFE volunteers were the guests of honour at a recent celebration event.

Held at the Old Station in Tintern, the Volunteer Celebration Event, on Wednesday 5th June was organised as part of the UK-wide Volunteers Week.

The event was held to thank volunteers during the UK-wide celebration that shines a light on the incredible impact that volunteers make in our communities providing an opportunity for promotion and celebration with our volunteers, partners and supporters.

The Volunteer Celebration event was supported by local suppliers and supermarkets including: Cinder Hill Farms, Isabel’s Bakehouse, Wigmore’s Bakery, Waitrose, M&S and Tesco.

There are currently around 344 volunteers actively engaged with MonLife over the year, volunteering across 36 opportunities across all service areas.

This equates to a total of more than 13,104.35 volunteer hours with a monetary value of more than £177,000.

Monmouthshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Equalities & Engagement, Angela Sandles, was in attendance at the event.

She said: “It is important to let our volunteers know how much we appreciate all they do.

“Volunteers week has given us an opportunity to celebrate their effort and I would personally like to thank each and every MonLife volunteer.”
