Volunteer co-ordinator Lisa Clarke said: “The Jubilee party was not only to celebrate the Queen’s platinum anniversary but also as a way of saying thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers during National Volunteers’ Week. Without their efforts we would be unable to function as we do.”

Amongst the guests were scores of the charity shop helpers, volunteer drivers and the group of unpaid gardeners.

Lisa added: “Many volunteers had to step down during the pandemic and we would urge people who have a few spare hours a week to come forward and offer their services.”
