High Sheriff celebrates Shropshire community volunteers
Over 350 people from all over Shropshire attended the Cow Palace in Willey for afternoon tea, an art exhibition and live music from the Jackfield Brass Band.
Attendees came from a variety of sectors, including the police, education, health and business.
They were each asked to “bring a volunteer in” from across the county to celebrate their incredible efforts, thank them, and inspire them to keep going.
Selina Graham, Shropshire’s High Sheriff, said: ‘It was a truly wonderful opportunity to celebrate and thank the many wonderful volunteers that Shropshire displays.
“I am very grateful to everyone who participated and I have to give special thanks to some organizations who were so supportive throughout the day; Derwen College, The Orbit Café Wellington, Severn Hospice, Broseley Life Skills, The Ark Shrewsbury, Telford CVS Wellbeing Café Madeley and Working Together Ludlow – all of whom helped by providing cakes and hospitality to complement the after-tea noon provided by So Food.
Sonia Roberts, CEO of Landau, Telford added: “This is the first time in my memory that the voluntary sector has been recognized in this way, so I thank Selina for using her time as High Sheriff to show her appreciation. to our work”.
