Edinburgh volunteers with Sacro Chief Executive, Tom Halpin

Volunteers Week (1-7 June) is a great opportunity to celebrate some of the outstanding work contributed by our volunteers. To kick the week off, Sacro staff in Edinburgh hosted an afternoon tea party for some of our volunteers. 

Sacro Chief Executive, Tom Halpin dropped by to pay his tribute to the valuable work they do. "The contribution of volunteers to the work we do is immeasurable. Sacro’s volunteers provide us with much more than their time, energy and commitment. The skills and knowledge they bring has a very positive effect on the lives of those who access our services. 

"There are few better examples of good citizenship than the giving of time and effort to improve the wellbeing of others. To those who have made – or will be making – such a personal investment in Sacro, I offer my sincerest thanks."

Tom also presented an Inspiring Volunteering Achievement Award to Brittany Stewart. Brittany works with Sacro's award-winning Another Way service in Edinburgh.
