Volunteers’ Week 2020

It’s Volunteers’ Week this week, a time to celebrate the amazing contribution volunteers make and giving an opportunity to say thank you. The Rainbow Turtle shop and charity wouldn’t be able to function without our enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers, and we really do thank each and every one of you for everything that you do. Even though Rainbow Turtle isn’t able to carry out most of what we do right now, our volunteers are still keeping our spirits up with their lovely emails and video chats, and lots of ideas for the future. Thank you!

Under more normal circumstances we would have organised something this week to thank our volunteers properly – last year we had a lovely night of sandwiches, cake, and chatter! – but of course that’s not possible right now. We hope to be back together very soon, and we can postpone our celebrations until then.


Volunteers’ Week Celebration

It’s Volunteers’ Week this week (1st – 7th June) so to celebrate we got together with some of our amazing shop volunteers and charity trustees on Wednesday, had some tasty sandwiches and cakes, and had a good chat. It was great to see so many of our volunteers at once, and a good opportunity for everyone to meet or catch up with those who tend to help out on different days. Rainbow Turtle wouldn’t be where it is today, and wouldn’t be able to continue, without the support of our fantastic volunteers, so it was only right that we did something to thank them.

We’re also always seeking new volunteers so if you’d like to join this friendly bunch then have a look here for more information and get in touch!
