A visit from our founder – Robert Davies
Robert Davies, who founded VCS back in 1964 visited at our new base at the Inroads Wellbeing Institute today with his wife Ingegerd. Robert now lives in Sweden but keeps an active interest on our activities. Robert & Ingegerd had a tour of the building and heard about the collaboration between VCS and Inroads which has already seen the development of 17 volunteering roles. They joined staff & volunteers for a community meal in the Wellbeing Cafe and shared memories of the early days of VCS back in the 1960’s and its many incarnations – and locations – over the past 52 years. Robert said he was impressed at that the Wellbeing Institute was clearly at the heart of the community – which is very much in keeping with the original philosophy of VCS. We look forward the welcoming them back soon.
