Happy Christmas from Jaguar Land Rover!

ReCOM has been one of the lucky organisations to benefit  from Jaguar Land Rover’s initiative to support 18 local charities over the 12 days leading up to Christmas. Their generous donation is being put towards our Volunteer Christmas Lunch. Big THANK YOU to everyone at JLR and especially to Adrian Whitehead who came to present the cheque!

To mark Volunteer Week this year ReCOM helped to organise an event for the Mayor of Solihull to say thank you to volunteers who make a difference to the lives of people in the borough. Here are Simon, Steve, Wendy, Barrie, Mo with Ashlee and the Mayor! Everyone had a great time so thanks also to Ashlee and other volunteer co-coordinators for making it happen.
