Thankyou so much for your speech idea. Does anyone have an idea/s for small personal gift to give out to our volunteers (approx.30in all) that we/residents and staff could put together and low costing also. Thankyou

Pinterest has a great stash of "thank you for volunteering" to attach to gum, candy etc.... I've had residents help make them up and hand out to those that help up with bingo etc.

Hi, just tell it like it is. without their help you would not be able to offer the recreational & leisure experiences that you do, they are essential to your work place by donating their time & engery to make a positive difference to others. Say you recognise & you thank them for their high level of committment,Let them know also that they are not only making your job & others more productive but that they are sending a powerfull message to young people that as a communiyt we are all responsiable for each other. Hope this helps Lynnette

In response to your request, I have written a small sample of a speech in appreciation of volunteers (above). You will have to adapt it for yourself and perhaps expand a little to suit your needs. A speech of two minutes is quite adequate for this occasion. Speak slowly and clearly. When you say the names of your volunteers look them in the eyes and smile. Make sure you don't forget to mention the names of every volunteer.

Good luck!
