The first two of our 2014 volunteer recognition parties were held on 26 June in Edinburgh and 10 July in London. More than 200 volunteers attended the two events, which included a speech from IFoA past president David Hare in Edinburgh and the incoming president Nick Salter in London.
One guest said: "I thoroughly enjoyed the event, in particular meeting other volunteers and seeing the huge range of volunteer opportunities that people are involved in. The magician, chocolate fountain and drinks were very much appreciated. I was also very impressed by the speed and accuracy of the silhouette artist in creating a nice keepsake. One thing that the event has also very much done for me is to nudge me into wanting to get involved with the IFoA even more. I look forward to attending events such as these in the future!"
The next party is being held in Birmingham, in conjunction with the Life Conference, on Monday 10 November. If you are an active volunteer and would like to attend this event, please contact Debbie Atkins, the IFoA's head of volunteer engagement.
