“People Who Inspire”: Volunteer Appreciation Party 2016
This year, we set out to organise a Volunteer Appreciation Party that would build connections and camaraderie between volunteers and staff – and we got so much more than we expected! It was a meaningful and moving event for everyone, from the sharing of personal stories of inspirational people, to what volunteering at AWARE meant to them. Our volunteers really did touch hearts.
The lunch event was attended by 55 volunteers and guests with 18 Star volunteers receiving special awards for the exemplary service to AWARE in 2015. Member of Parliament Louis Ng also graced the event as a volunteer and joined in the fun.
As one of our Star Volunteers, Min, wrote on her blog that lovingly describes the event:
“……in AWARE, it just feels more than an organisation. It’s a family.” Check out Min’s awesome selfie below!
