Tender meets the Elders

On July 4th, Tender was honoured to be one of the charities selected to present at an event held by The Funding Network and The Elders.  The event was aimed at encouraging volunteering to celebrate Nelson Mandela Day which is taking place on July 18th.  We were really excited to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu and former Irish President Mary Robinson and show them our Tender stall.  The attendees were given the opportunity to pledge a ‘time donation’ with the charities, promising to commit some time as volunteers.

The event was a thrilling occasion for us as we listened to Archbishop Tutu and Mary Robinson speak about the value of giving your time to a cause.  Participants were left feeling sure of their own potential and ability to make a real difference.

Thank you so much to all those who signed up to give their time with Tender, we can’t wait to work with you all.

If you’re interested in donating some time to Tender as a volunteer, please contact marie@tender.org.uk for more information.

Happy Mandela Day!
