This special week is a time when all organisations who involve volunteers are encouraged to say a huge thank you to their volunteers.
The Volunteers’ Week campaign was started in 1984, which means this year marks the 37th year of formally saying ‘thank you’ to volunteers.
This year, Volunteers’ Week falls at a time of crisis, when the lives of individuals and communities have been affected by a global pandemic, when our neighbours, community members and local volunteers have become more important than ever to supporting those in need.
We think that this year, it is more important than ever for us to recognise the contribution that volunteers make, both during this crisis and in every sphere of our lives.
This year, the campaign will focus on sharing volunteering stories – highlighting the amazing things volunteers are doing at these difficult times.
We'd love to hear stories from volunteers across Powys which we will share in our newsletters and on social media.
You can send us a volunteering story by filling in this online form.
