June 1st - 6th 2020 National Volunteer Week
National Volunteers week is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.
Although the corona virus pandemic has stopped all activities we usually do during the week at NET, recognising our wonderful volunteers, I thought I would
show you how NET Volunteers & Staff have not been forgotten. “Thank You’s ” have poured into Dover Street in the way of cards, letters, e mails, flowers and
recognition bike rides. These have been sent in recognition of all their dedication, love, caring and support by those in our wonderful community. We also
need to mention The magnificent Garforth Lions who have assisted in the delivery of food parcels - Jemma and family manning the food bank - The telephone
befrienders making 1000 calls a day - Those collecting and delivering prescriptions - The dog walkers and others undertaking many ad hoc tasks.
We have had communications from families from as far away as Australia, America, Holland and Germany - so grateful for the assistance we have given to
their Parents - Grandparents - Aunts - Uncles.
On behalf of myself Monica and all my magnificent staff team, Jean, Jayne, Elaine, Jane, Helen, Lyndsey, Lynda, Julie & Julia we want to say a sincere and
heartfelt thanks to you all. It really is time loving kindness.
Billie 6 & Lola 9 from Kippax pledged to ride ‘100 miles in May’ to raise money for the NET
Foodbank to support those in need during the Covid 19 pandemic.
They wanted to raise the money with a target of raising £250 - They SMASHED the target by
raising in excess of £1800 . A big thank you to Billie 6 & Lola 9 from Kippax (and their Dad) from
all those who received support from NET over recent weeks. Thank you again Billie & Lola from
Monica, Staff, Volunteers & all who have received food parcels over recent weeks. You deserved
the reception from those in your Avenue who cheered you across the finish line. I
Thank all of you who nominated NET for a Movement for Good Award. We were successful due to your
nominations and £1000 was given to NET. The movement for good award will enable us to continue to
purchase basic food items, deliver food parcels to those most in need and continue our telephone befriending
service. This service is certainly relieving the panic, anxiety and distress to those most vulnerable in our
community during the Covid 19 crisis and what will follow in the aftermath. Due to the nature of the crisis it is
hard to estimate how many people will benefit, but it will certainly assist NET to continue, move forward and
returning to its core function of supporting the over 65’s and their carers. hank you to everyone who
