National Volunteers’ Week 1-7 June 2019

Posted on Updated on

Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June) is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make.

During the week, hundreds of events and celebrations take place across the country, saying thank you to volunteers and recognising their invaluable and diverse contribution to the UK.

On Wednesday 5 June, 12:00pm-2:00pm there will be a volunteering showcase in the Albany Arcade in Halifax Borough Market, providing information about volunteering opportunities across the Calderdale area. Have your lunch and find out more.

Across this Volunteers Week website (https://volunteersweek.org/) you’ll find inspiring volunteering stories, ways to get involved in the week and free downloadable resources to help make your celebrations a success.

You can also download a communications pack containing key information about the purpose and aim of the campaign, how to get involved, key messages and statistics and template posts that you can use across your organisations’ social media accounts.

The campaign was established in 1984 by Volunteering England, which merged with NCVO in 2013. NCVO now leads this UK-wide campaign.Volunteers’ Week is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make.
