We had such a lively Volunteers Week! Celebrating all the hard work and commitment of our 180 Troops. We couldn’t achieve everything that we do without all their enthusiasm, passion and hard work.
We kick started our week with a celebratory thank you meal. We heard from our Board of Directors who talked about the great opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. They took us back in time and reminded us how much the 180 Project had developed since 2016. Everyone could see the part they’ve played in this phenomenal journey. To show our appreciation, the volunteers were given one of our amazing new 180 branded t-shirts.. just a small gesture to recognise the massive difference our volunteers make.
For Testimonial Tuesday, which is a momentous day of the week where we share how 180 has changed a person's life, we took a different slant for Volunteers Week. We shared a volunteer's story and how volunteering has changed their life.
We also invested in our younger volunteers… the future leaders of 180. We sent a couple of them down to London to sample some of the best CrossFit boxes, and to bring back new learning and insights to help us shape and improve the 180 offer.
All in all Volunteers Week 2019 was an inspiring and reflective week… it’s so important to take a moment, when everybody is so incredibly busy, to recognise how brilliant the 180 Team really is!!
