Chai Volunteers honoured at the JVN Celebration of Volunteering Awards 2019

On Wednesday 4th December, Chai’s Wednesday Afternoon Club volunteers (Lynne Silver, Andee Roback, Barbara Freedman and Ann Stanton) were awarded the Volunteer Team of the Year award at the annual JVN Celebration of Volunteering Awards at Allianz Park.

Following the awards, Lynne said, “13 years ago we started our Wednesday Afternoon Club…just four clients around a card table. Now we have created a family who laugh, sing, dance and chat, all within the safety and love of chai’s huge heart.

It’s an amazing honour to be part of such an incredible charity who strive to help others through their darkest times. It’s wonderful to be able help in a small way in the hope that for a few hours clients forget their troubles and smile.”
