TransCare has taken the opportunity during National Volunteers Week to show their appreciation for the people that give so much to the organisation.
The occasion was also special for one volunteer, Ros Anderson, who was presented with the Pam Moscatt Volunteer of the Year Award for 2018.
Ros has been volunteering with TransCare for almost three years as a helper on TransCare bus services.
“Ros is on the bus three days a week helping clients with their bags, walkers, getting on and off and anything else to make the trip easier,” TransCare Chairperson Penelope Fenley said.
“She puts in the hard yards, she will help with washing and cleaning the buses as well.”
“Volunteers like Ros are a huge part of why we can do what we do in the community.”
“We know that our clients value their service, for some of them our volunteers are the reason they have been able to remain independent and active in the community. From all of the staff and clients at TransCare we would like to extend our thanks to all of our volunteers and hope they know the difference they make every day to so many lives.”
TransCare hosted a Volunteers Week Luncheon on Friday May 24 where Ros Anderson was presented with the Volunteer of the Year Award and all volunteers were thanked for their contribution. Volunteers drive clients to appointments, take them shopping, accompany them on errands and more.
