Birthday hamper for dedicated volunteer

Birthday hamper for dedicated volunteer

Together Housing tenant and dedicated community volunteer George Tomlinson recently celebrated his 80th birthday in his Together home. George first moved into his bungalow in Rotherham in 1998, where he says he is as happy as ever.

George has spent 20 years volunteering at his local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, as well as running a pensioners club. To celebrate George’s milestone birthday he took members of the pensioners club on a night out, one of the regular activities they are able to organise thanks to the fundraising activities they hold and donations received from Together Housing.

George enjoys being a part of the Neighbourhood Watch and organising events for the local community, including regular coffee mornings, line dancing, gentle aerobics and bingo. George says that he’s spent 20 years volunteering as he gets such enjoyment out of it, but most of all he looks forward to their monthly trip and party.

To thank George for his commitment over the years, and to celebrate his 80th birthday, Together Housing sent George a birthday hamper. He said: “It was a lovely surprise, very nice.” George and Doreen were also lucky enough to celebrate their 59th wedding anniversary on the same day.
