Seven days of activity recognising and celebrating the contribution that volunteers make throughout Bucks will start on Friday 1st June 2018.
Voluntary and community sector organisations will have the opportunity to show their appreciation for the hard work and dedication shown by the volunteers in their organisation.
Volunteers’ Week is a national campaign designed to thank volunteers and celebrate the massive difference they make: their help is truly invaluable and critical to the success of many projects in our communities.
In Buckinghamshire alone over 175,000 people volunteered in 2017, helping to deliver an estimated unpaid contribution of £225m per year to the UK economy.
Volunteers’ Week is about volunteering for all – celebrating the huge range of people who give their time in so many ways to make a difference to their community. Ideas or inspiration about how to celebrate and thank your volunteers and the work they do for your charity or organisation can be found at https://volunteersweek.org.
The week is also about encouraging new volunteers to come forward. For those who have considered volunteering but don’t know where to start or what to do, it’s never been easier to volunteer.
With over 2,500 charities in Buckinghamshire and national volunteering websites, such as Community Impact Bucks’ partners Do-It and Reach Volunteering, people can easily search for their ideal role to support their community.
