What our volunteers say

'I volunteered at Spencer's Retreat around Christmas time and put on the big red suit and white itchy beard. The children all had a great time and more over all the volunteers helped me to feel part of the team. What an amazing bunch of people to be with. All focussing on the families and making their visit stress free and enjoyable. I will be back to help through the year and look forward to seeing Kate, Simon and the team very soon'

Corporate social responsibility is a business model by which companies make a concerted effort to operate in ways that enhance rather than degrade society and the environment. CSR helps both improve various aspects of society as well as promote a positive brand image of companies. 


Businesses make a positive impact in their communities by donating volunteer time, money and surplus products to charities like our's. 


If you feel your business can help Spencer's Retreat please get in touch and lets work in partnership and help us to support the families that really need us.
