Volunteer Thank You Event 2019 - London The annual ReachOut Volunteer Thank You Event (VTYE) is one of our favourite nights of the year. It’s an opportunity for us to bring all of our wonderful volunteers together and show how much we appreciate their hard work, commitment and resilience. The London VTYE took place on Wednesday 5th June at the Macquarie Group office in Moorgate. We were so pleased to have so many Mentors, Project Leaders and Corporate Partners in attendance. After some delicious food and drinks, put on by the wonderful team at Macquarie, everyone headed in to the awards ceremony. There were a number of awards; thank you to everyone who sent in nominations for each category. It was extremely difficult to decide on the winners, because there were so many deserving candidates! Congratulations to all of those who were nominated, and won awards. See a full list below, as well as some of the best photos from the evening.
