A day in the life of…a Honeypot volunteer

CVS volunteers at Honeypot HouseLeah Farncombe, one of our Customer Service Representatives, went along to volunteer at Honeypot House last week. Here’s what she had to say.

I went along to Honeypot House with four colleagues last week to help around the house and grounds to get it ready for the arrival of 12 young carers. We thoroughly enjoyed the day from start to finish; including the detour we took on our way to the house, which resulted in a Honeypot employee coming to our rescue and escorting us to the house! Is really is in a remote location, perfect for a respite break!

It was great to see the charity in action. We were highly impressed by the hard work that has gone in to making Honeypot House a complete refuge for the children that visit. Richard Cooper helped us understand more about how Honeypot works as a charity and we’re all really keen to continue to be actively involved in charity days and events to raise money for them.

Taking a break from the hard work!
The biggest surprise to me was the variety and quality of the facilities at the house; all the children that visit Honeypot House are very well catered for and as you can see from our photos we made the most of the facilities and really enjoyed the sand box and trampolines – in between all our hard work of course!

I’d like to thank Honeypot for giving us this fantastic opportunity. We had a brilliant time and look forward to joining the team again soon and continuing to support the charity’s brilliant work. Thanks also for helping us find our way there – had it not been for our escort we may still be driving around the New Forest!
