Respite holiday centre held celebratory event to recognise contribution of Revitalise charity shops and long-serving staff and volunteers
The Mayor of Eastleigh, Councillor Bruce Tennent, visited local respite holiday centre Revitalise Netley Waterside House in Southampton on Tuesday, as part of an official visit.
The appointment by The Mayor of Eastleigh was organised by Revitalise as part of celebrations to recognise the contribution of Revitalise’s twelve charity shops, which each support disabled people and carers to enjoy respite holidays at Netley Waterside House, and to celebrate the achievements of long-serving members of staff and volunteers.
Also in attendance at the event were Revitalise CEO Chris Simmonds and Mindy Sawhney, Chairman of Revitalise, who also gave a speech, thanking staff and volunteers present for their continued support and dedication to the charity.
Certificates to commemorate the long service and achievement of volunteers and staff were also presented as part of the occasion, with guests going on to enjoy refreshments.
Speaking of the importance of the occasion, Revitalise CEO Chris Simmonds commented:
“Celebrating the contribution of Revitalise’s charity shops, staff and volunteers is so important and I would like to thank The Mayor of Eastleigh for his attendance and support of our celebrations.
“So many of the people that were in attendance have been with us for a number of years and over that time have given their all, not only to make a difference within their local communities but also to our charity and the disabled people and carers that we support. That’s why our celebrations were so important, not only in giving recognition to our staff and volunteers, but in taking the time to let them know how truly valued they are.”
