Thanking volunteers – top tips for showing your appreciation!

Calling all volunteers! Make an impact by thanking your team for all the hard work they do. Check out these top tips to say thank you for the amazing contribution they make to the lives of girls and young women.

1. Send a text
Whether there’s just been a meeting, a big event or it’s just out of the blue, sending a quick thank you text to say thank you could really make another volunteer’s day.

2. Send a hand-written card
Nothing quite says thank you like a hand-written card. Know a volunteer who’s a whizz at recruitment? Pop a card in the post and let them know!

3. Organise a celebration
Let’s face it, cake makes everything better, so you could organise a celebratory tea party, a night out or just a catch up over a coffee to say thank you.

4. Shout about them on social media
Saying thank you publicly can really make people feel valued. Got a team opening a new unit? A volunteer passing a new qualification? Tell the world!

Mairi, who recently started volunteering with 76th City of Edinburgh Brownies, shares a time she felt thanked and what it meant to her:

“My county at the time (Glasgow) hosted a tea party for all the volunteers just to say thank you for our hard work which was heart-warming. I got to meet lots of other volunteers from all over the city and was made to feel like a really important part of the team.”
