What some volunteers said

  • “Drews Pond Wood work was brilliant! It was a beautiful environment to be in – definitely up for going again!” Team F
  • Everyone got on so well together – it was such a nice atmosphere and the weather was perfect which helped!” Team B member
  • “It was really hard work and I’m shattered but it was really great (working at The Trinity Academy). At the end of the day you could really see what we had to show for our team effort and the difference it made to the parents and children. It was a great day and we had the opportunity to socialise with the headteacher and school community over the b-b-q lunch they put on. Everyone got on so well together – it was such a nice atmosphere and the weather was perfect which helped!” Team B member
  • “Yes! Thank you for inviting me. I REALLY enjoyed the day and helping the different teams - it was excellent! I particularly enjoyed the project at Southbroom St James Academy where you could see what a difference that number of volunteers made in a day. I’m definitely going to do it [The Noise] again in October”  Kevin – first timer

What those helped said 

“The volunteers were all very friendly. It was great and made a huge difference to me. They cleared away everything they took down and left my garden very tidy.” Local resident

“I wanted to write to express my sincere thanks for all the time and effort that went into organising The Noise last weekend. Everyone at Trinity was immensely thankful to the volunteers giving up their time to help parents and children from school make a difference to our outside areas. Please find attached some before and after photos to help celebrate the day’s achievements.” Andrew Wilson, Headteacher The Trinity CE Primary Academy.

“I wanted to thank you myself for the fantastic job the Noise volunteers did cleaning the Alzheimer’s Support Day Centre so well on Saturday. The staff and volunteers were amazed how much the team had done and really appreciated the huge amount of work that must have gone on. If you send me some photos I will put them on the Alzheimer’s Support Facebook with an acknowledgement to The Noise Devizes so that their efforts can be recognised by a wider audience.” Grant Newton, Day Care Services Manager, Wiltshire

Reaching out in love with action is a great way to promote God’s love throughout the community where we live. Jesus transformed lives by His love in action and we are so privileged to be able to show in some part that we care in His name as our way of passing on his ministry and, as you can read from above, the blessing isn’t limited to those whom we serve. If all 75 volunteers from the May event each invited just one more volunteer each just think of the impact on our community.
