About Our Logo
This bold type based logo reflects the new vision with attention on SENIOR VOLUNTEERS. At the core of volunteerism is a heart of gold that is patient, giving and selfless.
Here the stylised heart is formed by two interlocking arms of the letter ‘V’. The weave-like overlapping of the strokes in the heart represent the close relationships the organisation hopes to build with its volunteers, community and all other stakeholders.
The dark cornflower blue represents a mature organisation with more services and will be more professional, while the mandarin gold represents distinctive standards and service with passion.
