Volunteer Days

2014

volunteersday2014On the 2nd June 2014 the office closed and the team spent the day at Chiltern Open Air Museum. We split into 2 groups to help COAM with it’s educational commitment. One group built a stone age settlement complete with shelters and a working fire pit whilst the other group had a very energetic day ‘renovating’ the iron age house and grounds. COAM were delighted, commenting:

“A huge thank you from us to you all for working so hard during the day to help the Museum. The Mesolithic area looks amazing and has enabled us to definitely promise our Stone Age workshop to schools in September thanks to you…… the team worked exceptionally hard and the difference they have made to the Iron Age House is amazing. This is one of our most popular exhibits and most well used, particularly by schools for the new Iron Age workshops and it is extremely hard to keep it looking pristine for all our visitors so we are very grateful to everyone. I know you were all exhausted after your day here and I hope that everyone has recovered.

Thank you again for a wonderful day’s work and for all your achievements.”

2013

volunteersday2013On the 3rd June 2013 the office was closed and the team spent the day at Restore Hope Latimer decorating the Dairy and assisting with some grounds maintenance work. We were delighted to be able to contribute to the work of the charity.

Restore Hope Latimer sent us the following response to our day with them:

“WOW!! I don’t think this email will express well enough our deep gratitude to you all for the fantastic help that you gave us on Monday. Your team was EXCELLENT – so skilled, so diligent, so committed, so willing. It was amazing.

We are especially delighted by the high quality of work that you completed and the warm and relaxed way that you went about it.

I really hope that you all felt a sense of satisfaction at the end of the day and I trust everyone knows how grateful we are – please pass these sentiments on.

As our work brings us face to face with people who are really struggling and who are in very testing situations, to have clean, bright and welcoming places to meet with them is such a blessing. So your work will be noticed for many months to come and the impact that it will have is immeasurable. I can promise that children will play happily in that room and people will enjoy the peace of the gardens and the field – and much of that will be thanks to your input – so thank you again.

With sincere gratitude and thanks again.”

On the 14th September 2012 the office was closed and the team spent the day at one of Padstones properties in High Wycombe which was in need of refurbishment. The team approached this challenging task with gusto and Padstones were delighted with the end result!

On the 21st September 2011 the office was closed and the team spent the day at Little Kingshill Nursery School undertaking internal and external decorative work, significant grounds maintenance of the external areas, including the playground, and constructing raised gardens for the children to use to grow flowers and vegetables.
