An unexpected event, like a pandemic, is an occasion when we are humbled by the generosity of Cantabrians. Planning for volunteers to help out in a community outbreak during a pandemic has been slightly different.
Volunteering Canterbury contacted people who have come through our usual recruitment platform in the past 18 months asking for those who were interested in specifically supporting Canterbury DHB. We were delighted with the result!
Since then these volunteers have gone above and beyond at this extraordinary time.
So we are feeling honoured to receive such a glowing write-up in the most recent Canterbury District Health Board CEO Update. Check us out on page 12!
