It has become a bit of a tradition around the VPA team to have cake on a Friday for our team meeting. This week we had a mega cake off with no less than 3 types of cake! Sarah, Colin and Jo all baked cakes in honour of Friday and more importantly Paul ‘the penguin’s Birthday. We had a chocolate and beetroot cake (Thanks Colin!), courgette cake with deliocious lime curd (Thanks Sarah!) and some lemon drizzle cupcakes……..photos to follow!
After the weekly team meeting the team got stuck into their understanding volunteering module. Today they have been learning about the benefits of volunteering and different volunteer involving organisations. Issues such as funding organisations, their management and frontline services provided have been covered.
This work will go towards their community volunteering qualification which they should complete by the end of the 12 week programme.
