What is Volunteers' Week?
National Volunteers’ Week takes place every year between 1 – 7 June and is a celebration of the contribution made by millions of people across the UK through volunteering. This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, all the events we would usually do to celebrate Volunteers’ Week have been cancelled in line with government advice. Whilst we cannot say thank you in our intended way, now, more than ever, it is important to recognise the tremendous effort of every individual volunteer and community group.
The contribution given by volunteers to our community is hugely important and incredibly valuable and therefore it should be recognised and given the praise it so duly deserves. We want to take this opportunity to say thank you to every single volunteer and community group in Newark and Sherwood.
