On Saturday 10th November a group of students from the Long Road Volunteering Club, accompanied by the club organiser Sam Plant, spent the day at the St John Evangelist Church in Cambridge raising money for charity.
We’d like to say a huge well done to these amazing students as they managed to raise a whopping £900! All of which will be donated to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association and Fight Against Blindness – what an outstanding amount of money raised!
The event organiser, Marion, emailed our amazing volunteers to say
“Many sincere and very grateful thanks for all your help over the last few weeks assisting in the preparation for my charity event. As you know the event was a fantastic success and to date has raised £900 and I anticipate there is more donations to come. As you know I am a beneficiary of the charity and Gus is my third working dog. I think the volunteering club that Sam Plant has developed and coordinated is a wonderful way of gaining life skills and finding out about people. I do hope we will see more of you in the future and again thank you.”
Over 20 visitors to the event approached Sam to compliment our student volunteers saying they were “always smiling and happy”, “did every job role to the highest standard”, ” worked hard for the entire time you were there”, “mature and very respectful” and “extremely kind hearted”.
Congratulations to Anna, Jack, Eddie, Emily, Zainab, Dana, Magdalena and Sam for all your hardwork, the wonderful compliments you received and all the money raised. We can’t wait to see what the Volunteering Club gets involved with next!
