Our June edition of OPAL Matters celebrates Volunteers’ Week 2022 and applauds the work of the amazing volunteers who underpin the work of OPAL Services. OPAL would like to thank each and every one of them for being such an important part of our Charity. This issue also reports on the visit to Buckingham Palace of two volunteers, Mary Thompson and Lesley Duggan, who represented OPAL at a recent Royal Garden Party in recognition of OPAL’s Queen’s Award for Volunteering.
Mary and Lesley write: “What a magical day this was and we feel so privileged and honoured to have been able to represent OPAL in this way. We had such a memorable experience, which we will treasure forever. A big thank you to OPAL for allowing us to represent you at this special event.”
