Volunteer news from Azanda Sithole

I can’t believe it’s been seven weeks since I joined the Care-Network team. I suppose it’s true when people say ‘time flies when you’re having fun’. My first day was the 3rd of June and it happened to coincide with Volunteer Week (1-7th of June 2019) which was the week for our volunteer celebration event, talk about timing! I’m a pretty hands on person, plus I used to work in events so I absolutely loved getting involved. Most of the hard work had already been completed by the team so it was plain sailing. The best thing about the volunteer celebration event was meeting some of the volunteers,  including those who had been with us for five or ten years. How lucky are we that we have people who have given their time to support our clients for a whole decade, it’s really inspiring. I’m looking forward to meeting more volunteers and continuing to learn more about Care-Network, we do so much and every day I learn something new about the services we provide. Whether it’s Healthy Fenland, Help at Home, Community Navigators and Community Development, there is so much that goes in to providing a bespoke service to clients and the communities throughout Cambridgeshire.
