Suncare celebrated International Volunteer Day in December 2020 by recognising the significant impact our 200 volunteers make for our customers. The theme for the 2020 International Volunteer Day was ‘Together We Can Through Volunteering’, which was very appropriate in the challenging times associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Suncare CEO, Russell Mason, says the strong relationships and friendships experienced by our volunteers and customers is evident every day. For example, Bernice Axsentieff worked with Suncare as a Support Worker for Pam Taylor for over three years, and while she has now finished work, she maintains her friendship with Pam through volunteering.
“Pam says her weekly visits with Bernice remind her of the coffee dates she used to share with her sister, and she looks forward to the visits each week,” said Russell.
“We can’t thank our volunteers enough.”
