National Volunteers’ week – thank you to all OPAL Services volunteers!

National Volunteers’ week – thank you to all OPAL Services volunteers!

Dear OPAL Volunteer,                                                        30thMay 2018

The first week of June is National Volunteers’ Week and we, as Trustees and staff in RCS, running OPAL Services want to celebrate and thank you so much for all that you do every week of the year to make the lives of older people and their carers more enjoyable and fulfilled. Without your input, imagination, effort and time we would not be able to offer people all that we do. The value of our services for those receiving them is clear from the comments we regularly receive and that in turn makes us proud of our organisation and of you, who as a volunteer, are the backbone of the organisation.

Thank you and well done to all.


With best wishes

Jane Colville  [Chair of Board of Trustees]
