RFBI Inaugural Corporate Volunteers Week a huge hit

cornerstone 8 Mar 2017

As part of a new initiative designed to give our business partners an opportunity to experience what residential care is like the RFBI Way, teams from across RFBI welcomed 30 Corporate Volunteers to join in the life of one of our Villages for a day.

Our Corporate Volunteers were able to join in with some of the activities our residents enjoy on a regular basis, from snooker tournaments, bowls, and bingo, to high tea and happy hour. Feedback from our Volunteers suggest that they had as much fun as our residents.

We were delighted with the attendance from many of our corporate partners and suppliers, who gave a day out of their busy schedule to join us. Many thanks to:

  • Magoffin & Deakin Architects
  • Staples Australia
  • IOH
  • Warren Saunders Insurance Brokers
  • Preventative Electrical Services
  • Quorum Systems Pty Ltd
  • Suncorp (GIO)
  • Ensol Systems
  • Paul Hartmann
  • Food Aware Australia
  • Vero Insurance
  • Jobs Australia

We were also very appreciative of the supportive feedback:

It was a pleasure volunteering at RFBI Hawkins Village. As well, all the residents we met including Len, Darby, Lauren and Roy were very happy being there and enjoyed us working  with them. We learnt a great deal about the fabulous work you do.’ John Halicas, Staples Australia Pty Limited

‘Thank you for giving our team an opportunity to spend the day at Concord Community Hostel. You’ve got such a passionate team and I admire the heart and effort they put in to create a caring and happy environment for the residents.’ Stephanie Tang, Suncorp

Thank you to all of our Village teams and wonderful Corporate Volunteers who participated in the event. On the back of the wonderful feedback we have received, we will be looking to make this an annual event on the RFBI Calendar.
