The 21st of May was a day of thanks to all the volunteers around the country.
At Arcare North Shore, it was our turn to give back to the wonderful people who give their time to others here in the tropics.
Our volunteers are Barbara Culleton, Margaret Smith, Michelle Dale, John Stanley, Barbara Johnsson, Sue Lewis, kate Shannahan, Sharon Barnett, Petra Vanderkamp and John Dale.
Our volunteers were taken to our formal dining room to be waited on by our wonderful catering team members and treated to a five-star luncheon prepared by our talented chef.
“No wonder the clients love being here, this food is amazing!” said Kate.
Everyone got to relax, enjoy themselves and really get to know each other at the luncheon.
All of us here feel very privileged to have such kind and generous people who are sharing their talents, knowledge and kindness with everyone at the residence.
We thank all the volunteers around the country and we especially want them all to know how much they are appreciated here at Arcare North Shore.
“Arcare is a wonderful place to give my time and I really love being here,” said Barb who volunteers 3 days a week.
