Well done to all our Sapphire Day volunteers

This year’s Sapphire Day was held at the Age UK Drovers’ Centre in Islington. The centre is a buzzing activity centre catering for the local community but was in desperate need of some tender loving care.
A group of Sapphire staff and resident volunteers gave up their day to embrace their creative side and turn their hand to painting and general decorating.
The lounge and reception area were the focus for the day and had to be cleared in preparation, which in itself was no easy task. Our Maintenance Operatives Carruthers and George, took the lead, expertly giving instruction and guidance on what needed to be done. All the ceilings, walls, doors and skirting boards were painted and all other areas given a good freshen up.
Sapphire's HR and Governance Mananger, Beverly Finn, arranges our annual Sapphire Days every year and couldn't have been more impressed with all the hard work everyone put in, stating:
The group worked fantastically well together and are a testament to what good team work can achieve in one day.
We've also received some great feedback from the Drovers Centre Manger who contacted Beverly to say the following:
Thank you so very much to your amazing team of volunteers. Our service users feedback has been very positive and the centre looks even fresher. Many thanks again from all my colleagues and everyone at Drovers.
A massive well done and thank you to all the volunteers for giving up their time to help this local project.
