This photo shows Vick Buck who was the Mayor of Christchurch, with Judith, Lady Hay, who was our Chair at the time, in Cathedral Square celebrating Volunteer Awareness Week in 1990.
What voluntary work were you doing in 1990?
Claudia (left) and Annabelle read the citations at our 2008 Youth Volunteer Awards. I wonder what volunteer work they’re doing these days?
In 2004 Valerie Adams kindly agreed to present Youth Volunteer Awards on International Volunteer day.
Here she is with Chrissie Williams who was our Chairperson at the time. Have you ever been to one of our Award ceremonies?
For several days in 2007 we had volunteers sitting in the window of Community House demonstrating a variety of voluntary roles.
These two women are from Cavell-Leitch Law, and they did this as part of their involvement in our Employer Supported Volunteering Programme.
In this picture friends from Christchurch Community House are helping us to get ready for Volunteer Awareness Week in 1997. This photo appeared in a “Press” feature to mark the week. Our Manager Ruth Gardner is standing third from right. Next to her in the white shirt is Mike Asmussen, Community House Manager. Do you recognise anyone else?
This was the entrance to our offices in the old Community House at 187 Cashel Street.
It wasn’t until 2001 that we changed our name to Volunteering Canterbury. The displays were set up for an Open Day. Did you ever visit us in Cashel Street?
