Duke of Edinburgh Award Volunteers Arrive


The awards recognise adolescents and young adults for completing a series of self-improvement exercises including undertaking service to individuals or the community (volunteering).

Since the beginning of this year, we have been delighted to welcome Amelia, Arabella, Aimee, Thea, Molly, Isabelle and Dom who have all chosen to support Operation Orphan for their volunteering section.

At the beginning of the year, we collected over 30 pallets full of clothing donations from supplier Banner that have all needed sorting. The D of E volunteers have tirelessly opened hundreds of boxes and sorted them into various items and sizes.

Warehouse coordinator Rob says that they have done an amazing job and really cracked on with lots of enthusiasm. We have been so grateful for their help as we would have never shifted that mountain without them!

If you or someone you know is looking to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award and is seeking a volunteer role, we would love to hear from you. Volunteering in our warehouse is such an important part of our Keep a Child Warm project and we know that young people find helping other (less fortunate) young people so rewarding.
