Droitwich tenants rewarded for volunteering efforts
2:30pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
ONE of Droitwich Spa’s largest housing organisations has given special recognition to some of its volunteers.
Festival Housing presented awards to volunteers from the town whose tireless work has helped communities.
People were recently rewarded by Festival, which runs a ‘Step Up’ volunteering scheme to encourage its tenants to get involved in local activities, at its first presentation evening.
The event, attended by 50 volunteers, celebrated the contributions of volunteers who support Festival's work in its neighbourhoods, which includes health and fitness programmes on the Westlands estate, lunch clubs for the elderly and kids' activities in school holidays.
It took place in Malvern on Monday, October 7.
Festival tenants who volunteer for other local organisations were also eligible for certificates.
Festival Housing manager Alan Moorhouse said: “Volunteers are at the heart of what Festival does in its communities. People who give their time and skills as volunteers can get a lot out of it, like meeting people, developing skills, boosting their CV and knowing that they are making a difference. We want to make sure that we let our volunteers know that we appreciate the contribution they're making.”
