National Volunteering Week
11th May-17th May
We are hosting and supporting a number of events during this week.
The week is a great opportunity for organisations to give people, who are interested in volunteering, a chance to ‘dip their toes in’ and see if volunteering is for them! It is also a chance to Thank your volunteers. North West Simon Community are holding a Volunteer Appreciation morning on Wednesday 13th May and giving a certificate to their volunteers. If you have something you want to highlight for National Volunteering Week, please let us know.
