Volunteering with DART
DART is a team of volunteers – without you we wouldn’t work – so THANK YOU to those of you who already volunteer – and to those who don’t – why not give it a go – there are plenty of ways to help – large and small.
This section of the website is dedicated to Volunteering with DART.
At the moment we have a few items from the Juiniors who are working towards Saltire and Hi5 Awards.
We are putting together some profiles and items about the seniors – so keep an eye out for more.
Have a read and if you want to volunteer or for more information please contact us – DART.Coordinators@outlook.com
National Volunteering Week 1st to 7th June 2020
“I couldn’t let Volunteering Week pass without a big thank you to all our volunteers, from those who signed up at the beginning, we are now welcoming young people volunteering as part of Junior Dart and the Saltire Awards.
You are all amazing in total you have undertaken more than 300 activities from Dog walking, shopping and collections of prescriptions.
Special events included a special visit by the Easter Bunny, then the distribution of craft packs to children within the Dirleton Area and the introduction of the lockdown treats from DART to residents every fortnight.
We have seen the development of the D-ART Gallery by Junior Dart and teenagers undertaking the Saltire Award who have been busy baking.
Thanks to those behind the scenes who are tirelessly cooking and baking to ensure a ready supply of soups, crumbles and cakes for the larder. A big thank you to the Area Coordinators, the finance Conveyor and the DART Editor who regularly produces a newsletter and has recently designed our new website.
Thanks go to the DART craft group who are busy making face covering.
Thanks also to the residents who are requesting our assistance without you we are nothing.
Apologies if I have missed anyone out.
Lead Coordinator DART”
