Volunteers’ Week! 1st – 7th June 2017
Volunteers’ Week – time to say ‘thank you’! Volunteers’ Week is an annual UK festival of volunteering. The main aims of the Week are to recognise, reward and recruit volunteers.
Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of volunteers that takes place every year in June. Up and down the country there will be parties, award events and outings, recruitment fayres and exhibitions taking place, to recruit, reward and recognise volunteers.
Local communities are encouraged to participate by holding their own street party or event, and to use this opportunity to support their local communities through fundraising or volunteering.
Volunteers’ Week began in 1984. Each year more organisations get involved, hosting a variety events throughout Wales, including award presentations, information stands and community events.
Why not celebrate Volunteers’ Week with your volunteers by, for example:
– Using the Volunteers Week logo eps jpeg formats
– Awarding volunteers and groups with a Volunteers’ Week volunteer certificate; group certificate
– Getting media publicity for what volunteers do
– Holding a special ‘thank you’ event A3 poster
Publicise your event as widely as possible.
