Leep1 Club Night Volunteers #volunteersweek

We are all really missing our monthly club nights at Pryzm but hopefully it won’t be long until we can all get back together again and party! Our club night volunteers help us run the evenings and without their help the nights just wouldn’t be as fun. We’d like to say a big thankyou to you all who volunteer with us once a month and help us dance the night away!

#volunteersweek Maisie and Vicky our Leep1 Facebook Group Volunteers

To celebrate #volunteersweek we will be sharing stories and paying special tribute to our volunteers each day this week for their incredible contributions. Today, we’d like you to meet Maisie and Vicky who have both been brilliant at adapting to their new roles as admin on the Leep1 Facebook page. With their help it means we can keep our Facebook group going at weekends so staff can have a short break.

Thankyou Maisie and Vicky. We couldn’t do it without you!

#volunteersweek Our Leep 1 Stars

We couldn’t do it without you!

All of us at Leep1 and Cafe Leep would like to say a huge thankyou to our amazing volunteers who help us with so many aspects of running the service. Since the lockdown, many more volunteers have stepped up to help run the facebook group, keeping it safe, manned and full of activities for our members who are isolating.

Volunteering Facts:

As well as helping others, volunteering can improve your wellbeing too. It’s human nature to feel good after helping someone out. Volunteering can also help you learn new skills and experiences, and boost your confidence.

Over 20 million people volunteer in the UK.

Many voluntary organisations and charities could not function without volunteers. In the UK there are over 166 thousand organisations who rely on the help from volunteers.
