Sainsbury’s Host Volunteers Tea Party

On Sunday 20th October, a Tea Party for all of Surrey Heath Age Concern’s Wonderful volunteers was kindly hosted by our friends at Sainsbury’s. This Tea Party is a part of a sponsorship package of SHAC, by Sainsbury’s; this marks 150 Years of Local Service by Sainsbury’s. This package also includes the redecoration of the Rainbow CafĂ©.

The Tea Party was held in the staff canteen at the Watchmoor Park Sainsbury’s Superstore, with staff members from both Camberley town and Watchmoor Park branches of Sainsbury’s hosting the event, waiting on our volunteers and keeping them well entertained. Volunteers were treated to some excellent sandwiches, cakes, raffle with some great prizes courtesy of Sainsburys and complimentary massages were available from Massage company. The event was a terrific success, with around 40 volunteers, staff and trustees attending, from all the smiling faces it is obvious what a fantastic time everyone had! The event was also attended by Cllr Robin Perry, the Mayor of the Borough of Surrey Heath and his partner Jill.

The event also marked the end of an era for Surrey Heath Age Concern, as it was announced that Gwen McClafferty would be taking over as the new chair of the trustees, following the retirement of Rev. Christopher Russell, after 50 years of service as a Trustee. A huge and very well deserved thank you to Chris for all his hard work over the years on behalf of Surrey Heath Age Concern.

A massive thank you, should also go to the staff from Sainsburys for being such fantastic hosts and keeping our fantastic volunteers entertained throughout the afternoon, thank you!
