Despite the constraints of COVID-19, we had a great volunteers’ week this year. Using virtual & online platforms we were able to get together to share and celebrate the contribution of our fabulous volunteers!
Zoom Get Together
We hosted a big virtual volunteer gathering – a fun evening on zoom with an ethical-fashion quiz and a textile themed sing along. The event was attended by regular volunteers from across Renfrewshire, board members and brand new volunteers who’d never even seen our faces before! Una and Amy were joint quiz winners each winning an afternoon tea delivered to their home by a local cafe.
Instagram Take Over
We gave a team of volunteers free reign on our instagram stories platform for the week. Hannah, Cara, Niamh, Sara and Tracey each took a turn showcasing their own work and inspirations. It was fascinating to watch as the week unfolded with each participant being so unique in their approach and was really rewarding to hear how ReMode had impacted on everyone’s lives.
Over the course of 5 days, we looked at the very different stories of 5 of our volunteers. Each one gave us an insight into how they got involved with ReMode and what volunteering means to them. It was inspiring to hear everyone’s stories and lovely to be able to highlight the broader skills of our volunteers in a more in-depth way – we have a team of extremely talented writers, artists, musicians and scholars on our side!
