Frade’s volunteers – a local success story
This week we attended the Stockton Volunteers Fair in order to celebrate the role of our volunteers as well as advertise what we can offer our community.
Frade prides itself on the team of volunteers without which we could not operate.
Last year we received 16,600 hours of support across our three stores, assisting our van drivers, working in retail and as part of the logistics team.
We cannot overstate how much we value their contribution and are keen to ensure they all get as much value out of the relationship as they put in.
They come to us for various reasons – improve their health and wellbeing, build friendships and learn transferable skills ready for the workplace.
One of our core aims is to improve employability and so, when four more of our volunteers gained paid employment last year, we were as delighted for them as we were sorry to see them go.
If you have a few hours spare each week, why not give Steve a call on 01642 608791 or register an interest here.
