We were delighted to host Volunteer Celebration Events at Omagh Enterprise and the Sollus Centre, Bready. It was an opportunity to say thank you to our volunteer car drivers for the amazing work they have done over the past year.
In the past few months, we have started to see a new normal and therefore a significant increase in trip requests. Our volunteer car drivers are going above and beyond to ensure our service users get the transport they require. In this year alone, our volunteers in the Easilink operational areas – Omagh, Strabane and Rural Foyle have delivered 4852 passengers’ trips – Amazing!
It was only fitting to get the fantastic motivational life coach, Cliodhna Fullen blog in to do a session with the Omagh volunteers on the power of the mindset and self-care. It gave our volunteers the time to sit back, reflect and remember to take time for themselves, when they are out helping others. It was a very inspiring and uplifting session for a Monday morning. Thank you Cliodhna.
We were only delighted to have Geraldine Keys, from Omagh Volunteer Centre come along to thank the volunteers and present EPIC Award certificates for their time commitment, along with the newly elected Chair of Fermanagh & Omagh, Cllr Barry McElduff. Thank you both for taking the time out of your busy schedules to come along.
We had Angie Porter from Refresh Health & Wellness doing a session on Tai Chi Seated Fitness – ‘Mediation in Motion’ with the Strabane and Foyle car drivers. The idea was to promote serenity through gentle movements, connecting the mind and body.
The session was also very fitting for our drivers, who have been very busy the past while driving in their voluntary roles. It was very refreshing indeed. A time to reset and refresh! Thank you, Angie.
We were delighted to have Jacqui and Mari-Rose from North West Volunteer Centre join us to present EPIC Award certificates to the volunteers for their outstanding time commitment.
Thank you all.
