Working hard in their Endeavours
IT WAS coffee and cake for all at Endeavour Industries yesterday as staff and clients celebrated the hard work of those who give so much to the community.
With a heavy reliance on volunteers in the day-to-day running of the organisation it was only fitting they celebrated Volunteers' Week with a cake to rival that of a wedding.
Volunteers were rewarded with certificates of appreciation to recognise their valuable contributions to the organisation and the community.
Manager Terry Politch said the morning tea was a perfect opportunity to properly thank those who worked hard for Endeavour.
"I don't think we could run the place without the volunteers," Mr Politch said.
"They help out everywhere and just go from strength to strength."
"And it's not just here (on site), they have a whole social side of it too."
Customer service manager Lisa Wilson agreed and said she could not thank the volunteers enough for all their efforts.
"Whenever they have spare time they help out and they even take projects home to do if they can't get down here," Mrs Wilson said.
"So today is about recognition and celebrating this dedicated team and to say thanks."
Volunteer Meg Calvert has two children employed by Endeavour and said she found helping the organisation extremely rewarding.
"It's great to come and see everyone and they always greet you with a big smile and by name," Ms Calvert said.
For eight years, she and her son Tom Potts have been involved with the organisation and Tom said he couldn't be happier.
"I even come in on my days off to help sometimes," he said.
"The friends and staff are good and all the volunteers - it's good fun."
Endeavour Industries currently has 15 volunteers who dedicate their time to making Warwick a better place to live.
