Phoenix said about the visits ‘Thursday’s visit to SAFE@LAST & Bluebell Wood Hospice not only allowed me to better understand the organisation’s role and importance in the community/society, but it also shows how volunteers play a major part in their operation, how it helps the organisation runs and how both volunteers and organisations help contributes towards each other’s advancement and ultimately benefiting the community/society at whole’.

Kerry added ‘It was great to be able to meet with Mark Smith from SAFE@LAST and Sandra Hind from Bluebell Wood Hospice and talk to them about their services and some of the volunteer roles that we are promoting for them.  Both organisations are doing amazing work which makes a such a big difference to people living in the local community.’
