We’d like to say a big thank you on behalf of our clients for this thoughtful and lovely donation of Easter Gifts organised by Angela Baker-Croft and her team at Waitrose in Welwyn Garden City. W Angela has been one of our volunteers since the 1st lockdown, supporting some of our clients with shopping, prescription collections and befriending. She has provided tremendous support to the organisation and extended this through her usual routine at Waitrose. We were blown away by their generosity and kindness. The gifts were delivered during the Easter weekend to our clients at the Welwyn Hatfield Community and Voluntary Service, some of the clients at Potential Kids and children doing great community service in the Borough; they were very surprised and delighted. The little litter pickers were doing an amazing job at tidying up Ridgeway in Welwyn Garden City. One of them even asked for a litter

New Volunteer Terry had his first shift at the large Vaccination centre at the Roche Pharmaceuticals Building in Shire Park, Welwyn Garden City last week. He was very keen to get started and dropped us a little message to let us know how it went. Terry said “It was extremely well organised; people were really please to be getting their jab and there were loads of thumbs up and smiles. Numbers were lower than hoped, but I am sure that will build up. Please pass on my thanks to all concerned. I have two sessions booked for next week and looking forward to it.” We’re glad his first day went smoothly and he is looking forward to the next. We thank him for his all of his support and think his colour coordination is spot on.
