A local charitable cause is hosting an event to celebrate the ‘unsung heroes’ within the community of Thorne & Moorends.
Thorne based cause Trust 22: The Andrew Lake Trust is hosting a coffee morning at the Moorends Miners Welfare & Community Development Centre to acknowledge the contribution made to the area by local volunteers.
Trust 22, whose own fundraising efforts enabled the installation of life-saving defibrillators in Thorne and Moorends, are inviting volunteers and members of the public to join them on Friday (7 June) which is the final day of a week that has been dedicated nationally to celebrating the work of volunteers within their communities.
Amie Knott, Trust 22 Founder and Trustee, said the purpose of the event is to recognise the contribution made by volunteers and also ordinary members of the public who might not realise the difference they’re making: “Without the fantastic support you have shown we would not have been able to achieve so much”, said Amie. “Every person who has stuck a penny in our pots, or picked up litter, or has simply shared a post; no effort is ever too small.
“Please come along and enjoy cake & drinks on us. Small donations are welcomed, but not necessary.”
The coffee morning takes place on Friday 7 June, between 10.00am – 12 noon, at the Miners Welfare & Community Development Centre on West Road in Moorends and anyone is welcome to attend.
