We are very happy to share with all our valued members of the St Andrew’s community the wonderful news that UnitingCare Glenelg Emergency Relief Volunteers have been awarded the Premier’s Certificate of Recognition for Outstanding Volunteer Service 2023.
Attached below is the UCG Newsletter telling of some of the items of interest from March. We distributed hard copies during Mary’s Kitchen Tuesday community meal yesterday and Robin was pleased to see his “name in lights.” Coincidently, the “Joe” from Lions Club on page 2 is the father of Robyn one of our Mary’s Kitchen volunteers.
Below is the prayer offered at last evening’s meal. We had a few first time folk, including someone who comes regularly during the day. At the end of dinner, he began wiping chairs and tables and said, “It’s the least I can do.” That warmed my heart and it was lovely to see a few others pitching in to give it that community meal feeling.
