CTLA Community Transport celebrated the difference supporters and volunteers make to their organisation and thanked them for all their time and dedication at a lunch held at the Hillcrest Centre, Newhaven on Wednesday 5th June.
Deputy Lieutenant of East Sussex, Juliet Smith JP was present along with the Mayors of Newhaven and Telscombe, the President of the Rotary Club of Newhaven, Peacehaven and Telscombe, Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce and many other volunteers and supporters. Juliet recently attended a lunch with Camilla, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, where raising the awareness of loneliness in Sussex and the charities that are working hard to eliminate isolation was discussed.
The event was supported by the Havens Community Hub, a new community interest company created to increase local volunteering opportunities, support other non-profit organisations and to work in partnership to create new projects, benefitting the Havens area.
Volunteers’ Week is a nationwide week to celebrate the work of millions of volunteers who give up their time to help others. This campaign was established in 1984 by Volunteering England which has since merged with NCVO, now the lead for the national campaign.
