Celebrating our volunteers and their invaluable work

Fair - volunteer event Hall Place July 2017

The invaluable work of our many volunteers was celebrated at a special event attended by staff, volunteers, governors, directors and our Chair, Andy Trotter.

Held at Hall Place in Bexley on 12 July, the grey clouds and rain failed to dampen the spirit of more than 100 volunteers who attended to share experiences with others, listen to speakers and have fun.

Chair, Andy Trotter, said: “Volunteering has played a key role in service delivery at Oxleas for many years, and I have seen for myself the impact our volunteers have on our service users and the valuable contribution they make.”
