9500 Volunteer Hours Donated in 2017

Another incredible milestone of volunteering

The work we do at The Lighthouse is only made possible by our team of dedicated volunteers. People of all ages and backgrounds come together to provide support from organising to cleaning, preparing food and helping out in Youth Groups.

Over the past year we have calculated that over 9,500 hours of voluntary service have been donated by the team. Even more incredibly, it has been estimated by Scottish Government Volunteer Scotland and the Office of National Statistics that the economic value to the local community of all those volunteer hours is in the range of £163,000!

We at The Lighthouse would like to publicly thank all of our amazing volunteers for their hard work and dedication over the past year and here’s to hoping the next year will provide us all with even more opportunities to serve our community.
