Volunteers Week Celebrations

Yay! We love our volunteers! We celebrated National Volunteers Week this week with the theme for this year being ‘Making a World of Difference’.

At Roslyn Lodge, North Tamborine we said ‘Thank you’ to our very special volunteers for making a world of difference to the lives of our very special residents.

Pictured sitting together are Sandra and Rita receiving their Certificate along with a winter soup mug embellished with a love heart and Thank you on it.

Volunteer, Charlotte received her award with resident Elise Opperman. It was a wonderful morning of fabulous food and a game of Bingo thrown in, as we acknowledged all the hours, years and hard work each and every one of our volunteers do. A special tribute was made to previous volunteers John Vance and his wife, Dawn along with John’s Guide Dog Vogue. Sadly, John recently passed away and had been a special Tuesday visitor and friend to many residents for over 10 years.

Dedicated hearts like yours
Are not so easy to find.
It takes a special person to be
So generous and kind.
