On Thursday 4th June, we will be holding awareness stands in Bracknell’s Princess Square shopping centre and at Basingstoke's Festival Place so that people can learn more about volunteering opportunities in their local area.
In 2014, Sebastian’s Action Trust volunteers were recognised with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, being honoured specifically for its volunteering services in Surrey. The accolade is the highest honour for volunteers as it acknowledges those who regularly devote their time to helping others and improving quality of life and opportunity for those they help.
Jim Fyfe, Regional Development Officer said, “We are very fortunate to have a variety of volunteering opportunities at our charity. From marshalling at events, to doing bag-packs and bucket collections, to running stalls at fetes and fares or even volunteering at our charity book shop Bas Books, we truly do have something for everyone.
Volunteers are at the heart of our charity, ensuring that we walk beside families from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. We hope that lots of people come and meet our teams in both locations on the 4th”.
Sebastian’s Action Trust is celebrating national Volunteers’ Week and will be featuring a handful of volunteers on their Facebook page, where you can read more about how they have become involved. The team will be at Bracknell’s Princess Square on Thursday 4th June from 11.00am – 2.00pm and at Basingstoke's Festival Place.
