Citizens Advice Liverpool celebrated Volunteers' Week 2017.
We created a wonderful video about our volunteers, which you can view here:
We attended local shopping centres to raise awareness of volunteering for Citizens Advice and held an information evening in a local café.
To finish volunteer week, we held a big celebration on board the Daniel Adamson steam boat on the docks! We managed to book the sun too!
The Danny steam boat opened to the public in 2016 for the first time in 30 years. The 109-year-old steam-powered tug has been lovingly restored by a band of volunteers. The restoration work, part of a £3.8m Heritage Lottery Fund award and with support from the Mayor of Liverpool included refurbishing all the brass work and intricate woodwork including returning the saloons to the 1930s style.
The volunteers on The Danny provided everyone with tours explaining her history and their restoration journey!
The event included hot drinks on arrival followed by a hearty bowl of scouse with red cabbage and bread roll and was finished with a presentation of certificates.
What a better place to celebrate the amazing work that volunteers do!
Clifford, has volunteered for the service for 37 years! How incredible!
