Volunteers Week 2021
In June 2021, we celebrated #VolunteersWeekScot by thanking all the volunteers that work with us at Connect to develop and drive the work of the Trust in meeting the needs of the local communities across Greater Easterhouse. We just wanted to take the opportunity again to thank the volunteers for all their hard work over this last year and beyond despite the challenging circumstances that we’ve all faced over the last 2 years!
