The West Swindon Family Centre has awarded its first volunteer certificate of appreciation Bronze award to Jan Baron who has been giving her time to the centre every week since November 2012, supporting the reception team in making visitors feel welcome.
Julie Batson, family centre manager, said: “We are extremely fortunate to have such a skilled, professional and enthusiastic group of volunteers who help us to provide the best possible service to our community. We would like to recognize Jan for completing 50 hours of service with the centre which has earned her a Bronze award.”
Jan Baron said: “I enjoy volunteering, using my skills to help others and at the same time I can learn new skills and meet new people.”
