Volunteers at Shropshire charity thanked with BBQ
More than 30 volunteers have been thanked for their dedication and commitment to a charity in South Shropshire.
The Furniture Scheme, based in Ludlow, hosted a barbeque to thank it’s loyal volunteers for the work they do.
The event took place at the charity’s base Rockspring Community Centre, in Sandford Road. It saw volunteers from the centre joined by those who help in the warehouse on Weeping Cross Lane, the carpentry workshop, Renaissance shop in Tower Street, as well as those at Craven Arms Community Centre and The Charity Bookshop in Newington Way, Craven Arms.
James Cooper, operations manager at The Furniture Scheme, said: “It was one of the hottest days of the year and everyone had a great time.
“Our caretaker Rob Gardner kindly cooked all the food with the help of volunteers.
“We wanted to say a big thank you to all of our volunteers and this barbeque was a small token of our thanks.
“The Furniture Scheme’s ongoing success would not be possible without the volunteers. I am amazed by their passion and commitment and so thankful for their ongoing support.”
The Furniture Scheme was launched over 20 years ago as a way to ensure some of the most excluded members of the community could benefit from recycled household items.
The charity has grown and now offers computer courses, carpentry workshops and volunteering in the garden, among other things across the six sites.
