Volunteer Commendations February 2017

Nothing makes a Volunteer Coordinator quite so happy as hearing volunteers talk about how much they love working with other volunteers. So we were thrilled to have received two commendations this month:

Volunteer: Esi Dadzie

Commendation: “Esi is has been volunteering for a long time. She is always in a good mood and willing to give a hand. It is a pleasure to volunteer when she is also volunteering”

Esi’s feedback: “Oh wow, I’m totally overwhelmed! Didn’t expect this at all and I’m really honoured”

Volunteer: Ian Spaguolo

Commendation: “Ian Spaguolo is professional, friendly and a great cooker”

Ian’s feedback: “Wow... I am really very touched ... I really appreciate the opportunity to work with such a great group of people, supporting a cause I feel very strongly about.  I feel like I get way more out of volunteering for the Food Chain than I could possibly give back, and I always look forward to my shifts; seeing the staff, volunteers and service users is often the highlight of my week.”

It’s great to be able to share these wonderful pieces of feedback - and the staff at The Food Chain would like to echo these very well deserved sentiments!

Know someone who deserves a metaphorical pat on the back?
