Last weekend Befriend held our 2018 Volunteer Thank you Events! The first was held on Saturday in Leederville at YMCA's HQ Leederville and the second on Sunday in North Fremantle at The Croatia Club. We have to give a gigantic thank you to Zena for doing such an incredible job, getting these events together and making sure that both days were super fun and ran smoothly. In saying that who better to tell us all about Befriend's 2018 Volunteer Thank you Events than Zena herself. Enjoy!
What a fun weekend it was at our volunteer thank you events! It may have been gloomy outside but the mood was sunny inside!
Acro yoga was a surprise for everyone in the best kind of way. What we were gasping at in shock at next minute we were all doing the poses with the support of each other. Everyone just couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces.
In Leederville Amanda Hunt gave some insight into how she got to her place in the community sector which was followed by a great discussion on what volunteering and befriend means to us. In North Fremantle Nadia Mitsopoulos shared personal stories and gave insight into the changing face of journalism.
When 12.30pm hit the Grill'd burgers rolled in and we filled out tummies with delicious burgers and had great chats about volunteering and everything in between.
We were so lucky to have a grant from Volunteering WA and Lotterywest that gave us the chance to put on these wonderful celebration events.
