On the 1st to the 7th June it is National Volunteers Week; various charities and organisations throughout the UK are celebrating the outstanding achievements and efforts from those who kindly give up their free time to support them. LEAP are proud to have had several volunteers over the years who have given an outstanding level of contribution to our cause and have helped the young people we work with flourish.
A prime example of one of our outstanding volunteers is Jane. For an extended period she has been providing cooking classes once a week to our young people. She helps them learn the importance of healthy eating and teaches them essential cooking skills; providing a number of diverse recipes from a variety of cultures. Budgeting is also a key skill the young people learn from her classes, and LEAP residents always look forward to her sessions!
On behalf of everyone at LEAP, thank you Jane for being such a wonderful volunteer and we can’t wait to see what future recipes you cook (and make the rest of us really hungry!).
