Happy volunteer week everyone!

Here at Umbrella we are celebrating this special week by holding our first training day, which we hope to be an annual event.

We will be having some Makaton training, an Inclusion workshop and lots of fun surprises thrown in at our event this week!

 I thought this poem summed up volunteering well;


Why be a volunteer?

 It’s not for money, its not for fame

It’s not for any personal gain

It’s just for love of fellowman

It’s just to send a helping hand

It’s just to give a tithe of self

That’s something you can’t but with wealth

It’s not medals won with pride

It’s for that feeling deep inside

It’s that reward down in your heart

It’s that feeling that you’ve been a part

Of helping others far and near,

that makes you be a volunteer!
