As part of Nottingham’s Mental Health Awareness weeks, we held a coffee & cake afternoon at the Involvement Centre in Nottingham.
A few of our volunteers popped along for a small buffet, tea, coffee, cakes and a chat.
We asked our volunteers about how volunteering helped their mental health…
…how volunteering makes them feel…
…and what advice they’d give to other volunteers.
These submissions are all going to be written up and added to the information packs we give our new volunteers.
We also had a quiz with a mental health theme (and a few general knowledge questions thrown in) with a £10 gift card prize up for grabs.
We used this opportunity to get feedback on posters volunteers have been helping design for our team too.
Thanks to everyone who popped in. It was a lovely afternoon and it was wonderful hearing the hubbub and laughter all around the Centre.
