To celebrate Volunteers’ Week a tea party was held on Thursday 1st June at Ernest Kleinwort Court (EKC) in Burgess Hill to thank some of the amazing and dedicated volunteers who give their spare time to come and support the service.

Service users and staff at EKC were delighted to be joined by volunteers who give their time right across the service, from keeping the stunning gardens spotless, to providing and supporting activities enjoyed by the people who live there.

There was a great atmosphere and everyone enjoyed a lovely cream tea served with home made scones and fresh strawberry sponge.

Emma Millar, Fundraising Officer, gave thanks to the volunteers on behalf of the Disabilities Trust and presented them with a gift as a token of the Trust’s appreciation. It was an important opportunity to give thanks to the volunteers for all that they do.
