It’s nearly the end of September … and a mere 6 weeks until our 2015 ‘at home’ meeting on Saturday 7th November.
Our invitation has already been accepted by volunteers who have worked in South Africa, The Gambia, India, Cambodia, Nepal and Peru … and Dianne will be here, of course, having recently returned from visiting projects in Swaziland and South Africa …
So, if you’re thinking about volunteering at some point in the future, or if you’re already making plans, this is a great opportunity for you to come along and talk with people who’ve already “been there, done it ( and not “got the T-shirt”we don’t do T- Shirts!) …
We all LOVE these occasions and can promise you a thoroughly informative and sociable afternoon: find out more about the projects; meet some of our local partners; talk with other volunteers; enjoy the stimulating company of like-minded people – of all ages and from all walks of life; share in some sustaining drinks and nibbles … oh yes, and meet the people and places team: Kate, Sallie, Dianne, Nigel and Harold …
Our Faversham ‘at home’ meetings are always popular, so please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to come, and if you will be alone or with friends and family!
email firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th October at the latest … we need to plan our catering!
WHEN: Saturday, 7th November – 1 to 5 p.m.
WHERE: head office – 1 Naboth’s Nursery, Canterbury Road, Faversham, Kent ME13 8AX (Kate’s Home!)
PROGRAMME: this is an informal occasion – at about 1.45pm, we will give a short presentation and then there will be plenty of time to ask questions and socialise.
“I attended a volunteers’ social event in Faversham in November 2014 and spoke to people who had worked at both projects. I also met Sonia, another volunteer who would be working in the same project and living in the same homestay. It was great to get to know each other before we started our placements.” volunteer Abbey, 2015
“Please count me in. It will be great to see you and other volunteers and have an opportunity to hear about other’s experiences as well as get a chance to share some of my own.” volunteer Sonia, 2015
You bet I’ll come !!! Can’t wait to catch up and talk to all these interesting people xxxvolunteer Anke, 2013 & 2014
