Our volunteers are the proud recipients of a Queens Voluntary Service Award, in recognition of their hard work in support of Shropshire’s homeless and vulnerable.

High Fives

“Each person that volunteers, even if it’s just once a month, they all bring something, their own thing.  Their personality, the way they are with people, the way they talk, their knowledge.”
