John Kelly, Chairperson of Cunninghame Housing Association presented a £500 cheque to Kaileigh Brown, Executive Director of The Ayrshire Community Trust.
TACT, based in Saltcoats, forms part of the North Ayrshire Third Sector Interface (TSI) with Arran Community and Voluntary Service. Their mission is to deliver programmes and projects that make a difference to people’s lives. They encourage, support and promote community involvement. Key areas of support they make available depends on local context and need. They are Volunteering Development, Social Enterprise Development and Charity. This includes but is not limited to setting up, running a charity and funding support.
TACT organised a Volunteers Online Celebration to highlight how important volunteers have been over the last 2 years. Although society is moving on, there is still uncertainty of what the future holds. For some this is a huge problem. Everyone at TACT has been in awe with the dedication that volunteers have given.
The money from Cunninghame Housing Association helped with the costs of running this year’s Volunteers Online Celebration. It helped give ‘goody bags’ to the volunteers who work tirelessly. They give of so much of their own time to look out for others.
The funding for The Ayrshire Community Trust came from the Associations “Making Our Communities a Better Place Fund”. This runs throughout the year (1st April to 31st March) until the funding is exhausted.
We would like to thank Cunninghame Housing Association for their continued support of our Annual Volunteers Week celebrations. Without such important donations we would not be able to see the fantastic contribution of our local volunteers. They go above and beyond to give important and meaningful services within our communities each year.
Kaileigh Brown, Executive Director of TACT
We are thrilled to be able to help to make the Volunteers Online Celebration happen. It is important to recognise the hard work so many volunteers do by supporting important services. These include hospital transport, Foodbank and befriending programme and the many people who benefit from these services. Without the volunteers many services would not exist.
