Congratulations go to Rachel Powers, our Volunteer of the Month for August 2017, who has received a certificate and gift voucher. 

Volunteer of the Month Aug 2017


Rachel is a self-employed hairdresser who works at the Barber Shop 'Dashing Blades' in Fargo Village.  She wanted to offer her services for free to any of our clients who are homeless to help them feel better about themselves and improve their self-esteem and appearance for i.e. a housing/job interview, which she certainly has achieved!


Rachel has been coming to our Head Office, on her only day off every month without fail since April, providing an excellent service to our clients.  Here is what some of them had to say:




“Really happy, very nice and friendly and I was happy with the haircut”

 “All good, good haircut, very nice and friendly and I appreciate that she gives up her time to help the vulnerable”

 “Excellent, really happy with haircut, brilliant experience, pleasant, professional and very good at her job and makes people feel at ease”

Rachel says she just loves cutting hair; “I wanted to give something back and love what I do, and in the time I've been volunteering, I have met some lovely people and had lovely feedback. It's really good to hear that you make a difference just by doing something little.

Well done Rachel and thank you.
