The Neighbourhood Trust Golden Connections Programme for over 65 year olds has 100 active members who participate in various events and activities. We have a dedicated team of 19 volunteers whose help is essential to keeping the programme running smoothly.

This week is National Volunteer Week and we want to acknowledge the amazing work our volunteer team put into the programme and thank them for all the time and energy they put in to Golden Connections.

Our team take care of the practical side of running the programme – they make and serve food, set up and pack down, do the dishes, take payments, provide transport, make get well and thank you cards, and play music. They also help to create a welcoming, hospitable environment, offer friendship, pray for people, and show their love and care for the members.

They are all a vital part of the programme.
