Spirasi Volunteer Appreciation
Spirasi mark National Volunteer Week
with a Certificate of Appreciation to all our volunteer befrienders!
Author - Deirdre Markey - Befriending Officer with Spirasi
To mark National Volunteer Week 17th-23rd May, an individual certificate of appreciation was sent to each one of our team of befrienders to acknowledge our thanks for the support they give to their befriendees
While face-to-face meetings has been suspended since the onset of Covid, our befrienders have responded magnanimously and resourcefully to the challenges presented. Regular contacted has been maintained with befriendee/s via telephone, text, messaging and video technology. We are hopeful that a return to face-to-face befriending will be possible soon.
Our team of over 70 volunteers support over 100+ befriendees (clients and students) with befrienders working across 18 counties.
