Volunteer's Week

Hunts Forum of Voluntary Organisations presented their two volunteers with special ‘thank you’ plaques to recognise their valuable contribution to the organisation.


Tracey has volunteered for Hunts Forum for a little over a year. Always happy to turn her hand to any admin task, she has become a valued member of the team. Tracey is now moving on and increasing her hours at her paid employment. We will miss her and her dedication. Thanks Tracey. Good luck with your new role.


Having volunteered at Hunts Forum since September 2010, Gaye has seen many paid staff and volunteers come and go. An absolute wizz with figures, she has looked after our data input and reporting for many years. Thank you Gaye, you are amazing.
