Does our next Volunteers’ Week Pin Badge Designer Volunteer with you?

Posted on

For Volunteers’ Week 2021, we wanted to do something special to thank the volunteers of Calderdale by creating the first Volunteers’ Week pin badge – and who doesn’t love a pin badge?

Thanks to the artistic flair of Memory Lane Cafe volunteer, Georgia, we designed a glow-in-the-dark pin badge that was given to Calderdale volunteers as a thank you for their hard work and dedication, especially during such a difficult year.This small token of big appreciation went down so well last year that we would like to do it again!  All we need is this year’s designer!We are looking for a local volunteer who has a love for design/art/illustration and would be up for co-creating our next pin badge, seeing them proudly displayed on volunteers’ coats around the borough!

If you would like to nominate one of your volunteers to help create the 2022 Volunteers’ Week pin badge, please email emma.worsley@cvac.org.uk
