On the 21st June 2016, the vegetarian restaurant, 1847, hosted a wonderful event in Birmingham Great Western Arcade. This evening celebration was to thank our volunteers for all their dedication and hard work over the year.
Volunteers are vital in helping us to deliver our services, supporting people who are homeless or vulnerably housed and it means a lot to our volunteers to get this recognition and opportunity to connect with other volunteers.
On the evening we were also celebrating The Birmingham Teapot Fund winning BVSC’s ‘Volunteer Team of the Year 2016’ Award and Sister Rose who received the ‘Runner Up in the 50+ Volunteer of the Year 2016’ in the same awards.
Everyone had a fantastic evening with some live entertainment by Alex Vann – including some beautiful songs by our former volunteer, Rich McMahon – Songwriter and Performer, who sadly passed away last year.
