Buckland Court Celebrates Volunteers’ Week With Another Eye-catching Window Display
The Amesbury home is becoming known for their bright windows and ahead of Volunteers’ Week, residents have created a beautiful display to share their thanks.
Volunteers’ Week is a chance to thank the millions of volunteers across the country who make a huge contribution to so many people’s lives. We’ve been using our windows as a platform for sharing our artwork on a topical theme, and maintaining a presence with the local community. We’ve had some wonderful feedback on our displays which have covered events like Christmas and Easter as well as things like a tribute to HRH Prince Philip.
We’ve really missed seeing their friendly faces during the tough times recently, but we’re looking forward to a time when things can get back to normal again, and we can really be part of our local community once more. So many of our residents have lived all their lives in and around Amesbury and it’s important to all of us to maintain those local links.
Volunteering is about promoting happiness and joy through and for us, that means our residents are having fun. People volunteer to do some gardening, or to come and play a musical instrument. At Buckland Court, we have our own little farm with goats and Percy, our pig, so there is always something a volunteer could help us with. It’s really as flexible as you need, and we’re always grateful for your time.
If you’d like to volunteer at Buckland Court, or at any other OSJCT home, you can find more information on our website. There is information there about how we’re handling volunteering during COVID-19 too.
This year’s Volunteers’ Week runs from 1-7th June.
