Following on from Linzi and Elainna’s Gower half marathon challenge last year, a new little OVT Team has formed for a new challenge! 

Consisting of Linzi, Philip, Richard, Victoria, Liza and Elainna, we will be traversing 14 miles along the Thames as part of the Thames Path Challenge, all in aid of Orchard Vale Trust. 

OVT is not only our home and our work. It is so much more than that, which is why we plan to smash our target and be a part of some amazing new projects with our fundraising money”

With Volunteer Week just gone we celebrated our longest serving and number one Volunteer, Keith.

Keith has been volunteering for OVT for over 7 years and has been a huge part of many projects at our main Resident Home at East Court.

He comes twice a week and has been a huge help with redevelopment projects and the gardening. Bearing in mind that we have 10 acres of land – that’s not a job for the faint hearted!

When he retired he remembered OVT as the charity his previous employer had donated to and enquired about volunteering opportunities.

“I wanted to give back” he told us, “Everyone here is so unique and over the years I really feel like part of their family.”

He said his biggest achievements have been the chicken coop and the fish pond, because he knows people at OVT will always get something from them, and that he will always be remembered as being part of the team.

Thank you Keith, your work here at OVT is priceless, we wouldn’t know what to do without you!

Would you like to volunteer for us like Keith?
