LEAP hails 'immense' volunteers
More than 70 volunteers gathered at the Cambuslang Institute during Volunteers Week to be applauded by LEAP, to whom they selflessly devote their spare time.
Volunteers from across South Lanarkshire attended the event, which started with LEAP Chair Gilbert Feron accepting an Investors in Volunteers Award from the volunteering organisation’s Allana Fotheringham.
The award marks LEAP’s re-accreditation for the third consecutive year.
The guests then enjoyed a great murder mystery event before being served lunch by members of LEAP’s staff.
Stuart McGregor, LEAP’s Executive Director, said: “having the opportunity to get our volunteers together is an amazing thing for us, recognising how selfless these people are by giving so much of their time to the people we support, and asking for nothing in return.
“They do not realise the immense difference they make to the quality of people’s lives.”
