Volunteers Week 2020
Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK – and it’s taking place from the 1-7 June every year.
Before the pandemic we were busy making preparations to celebrate Volunteers’ Week including our annual Portsmouth Inspiring Volunteer Awards (which will still take place, later this year), organising Volunteers’ fayres and getting ready to support local charities with events they were planning.
This year, some nation leads are continuing to mark the campaign whereas some will be stopping completely, but we feel, that it’s more important than ever, for us to recognise and support volunteers, say thank you for the contribution they have made and shine the light on local charities who are in need of support.
We plan to fill our social media feeds with great volunteering stories, lots of thanks and showcasing current volunteer vacancies that are listed on the website.
