Some of our wonderful volunteers at our recent Volunteer Celebration Brunch

Volunteers’ Week 2019

It’s Volunteers’ Week this week! A fantastic opportunity to say a massive thank you to the amazing volunteers that help us to support older people across Sheffield!

We simply couldn’t do what we do without the 70-80 volunteers that are helping us to help the people of Sheffield. Our volunteer roles are as wonderful and diverse as the volunteers themselves and they help us in so many ways. Whether their role involves supporting activities in our wonderful Wellbeing Centre, providing fantastic fundraising support at community events, being a friendly face as part of our In Touch befriending service or teaching valuable IT skills; our Age UK Sheffield volunteers are incredibly committed and compassionate people and our charity simply wouldn’t be the same without them!

So, here’s to them! Thank you for all that you do, it means the world to us and the people that you help us to support.

In honour of Volunteer Week this year, we caught up with three of our volunteers to find out a little more about themselves, their role and what volunteering means to them. We hope you enjoy reading about their experiences and maybe they’ll even inspire you to give volunteering a go for yourself! Click on the pictures below to find out more about our fab volunteers; Ben, Sarita and Sue.
