Thank You To Our Hard Working Volunteers

Here at The Centre we greatly value the contribution that each of our volunteers make, particularly in our Community Projects team. Volunteers are what our Skillsbank and Community Visiting programs are all about; their contribution improves the social fabric of our community and enriches the lives of many otherwise isolated residents immensely.

A heart felt thank you to each and every volunteer for their amazing support in 2017 and we look forward to catching up in 2018.
