On Sunday June 10th, East Coast Hospice was very proud to attend the ‘Celebrating Volunteering & Changing Lives’ event at Norwich Cathedral.
Norfolk Community Foundation worked with the Dean of Norwich, The Very Reverend Jane Hedges, who orchestrated the event to celebrate volunteering.
Norwich Cathedral celebrated the role of volunteering in the Cathedral Cloisters following the City Service. Charities were invited to put up displays about their work, with the Fayre formally opened by the Lord Mayor at 12.15pm. The Fayre was a lovely way to recognise those dedicated volunteers that work for the many charities and organisations throughout Norfolk and across the City and Diocese of Norwich.
“Many thousands of people give their time as volunteers working with people of all ages and with many different needs. As a result of their work, countless lives are changed and enriched.” – The Very Reverend Jane Hedges
East Coast Hospice were proudly represented by Andrea King, Head of Community Fundraising, Darren Lane, Community Fundraiser, Liz Irving, Head of Retail and Ewan Davidson, Manager of our shop in Magdalen Street, Norwich.
This was an amazing opportunity not only to celebrate our volunteers but also to raise awareness of our appeal. Our stall was very well received and kept us busy all day.
