Celebrating Volunteers Week with VAO!

It was Volunteers Week from the 1st to 7th June and VAO celebrated the contributions it’s volunteers make to their community with a number of thank you events, from a coffee and cake morning to a pizza and quizzing evening to a lunch time stroll and a sandwich and pizza lunch!



The Young People’s Befriending Project gathered up some volunteer Befrienders and Befrienders in training. they went for a lovely lunch time stroll, caught up on everyone’s news and enjoyed some pup cuddles!

Then a sandwich & pizza lunch, where current Befrienders were presented with their Volunteers Week certificate and thanked



To thank their young volunteers and mark Volunteers Week, The VAO Youth Development team put on a Pizza and Quiz night. On the night, five teams battled it out, with ‘The Old Beans’ shading it by one point from The ‘Young Ones and the Old One’, while ‘Orkney Swaggregates’ took the prize for the best name.

There was a lovely atmosphere with a real mix of folk and some keenly competitive streaks on show. During the pizza supper certificates and a few cheques were also presented.






Volunteers from VAO reception team, Orkney Walking Groups and The Learning Link got together for a Coffee and a Cake morning at VAO’s offices to swap experiences and enjoy more pup cuddles with Josh!
