The Big Volunteer Thank You party, held in the bunting-decorated garden at our hub in Chingford, was attended by more than 80 volunteers plus staff. A buffet lunch, home-made cakes, games and music combined to create an entertaining celebration. The event was funded by the Council’s Connecting Communities programme.
The Mayor of Waltham Forest, Cllr Elizabeth Baptiste (who volunteered for Age UK Waltham Forest herself at the start of the crisis), said “Today has been a fantastic day. This has been a great opportunity for me to meet all these wonderful volunteers.”
