We wanted to say a huge thankyou to our amazing 140 One25 volunteers who have been giving us so much support over the last year. You are absolutely incredible, massively committed… And to those who’ve been waiting patiently at home, we are so excited to welcome you back.
"I found out the other day that you're all volunteers on the van. Why would you do that? Why would you come out to us in the middle of the night and not get paid? I love you all!"- Helena
"One25 is the place that I call my second home and the volunteers are like my family"- Maya
"The love and support I received from staff and volunteers changed my life. I felt warmth and love for the first time in a very long time."- Hannah
