The Lakes Care Centre in South Cerney thanked their volunteers for all their hard work by hosting a High Tea celebration.

The Lakes Care Centre welcomed their wonderful volunteers for High Tea, as a way of saying thank you for all their hard work and commitment over the past few months.  The residents and team spent time decorating the garden room with crisp white tables cloths, cake stands laden with goodies and beautiful hand tied flower posies.

Once the volunteers had arrived, they were able to soak up some of the glorious spring sunshine while sitting in the garden room with the patio doors wide open for the first time this year.  The home management team served tea and coffee whilst our wonderful chef presented the Afternoon Tea selection… Delicious! 

After everyone had enjoyed the tea, it was time to present a very special envelope to one of our volunteers, Anna, who has been shortlisted for ‘Volunteer of the Year’ at the Employee awards in May.  We are very excited to be able to accompany Anna to the awards with both residents and staff too! We have everything crossed for her as her tireless work here is so appreciated and we certainly couldn’t do half the things we do without her.

Once the last crumbs had been eaten and the tea pots emptied; we gave each volunteer a hand tied posy to take away with them.  It was a fabulous afternoon with lovely company and a perfect way to spend time with our volunteers and to show them the gratitude they all deserve.
