This year, Volunteers’ Week falls at a time of crisis, when our neighbours, community members and local volunteers have become more important than ever to support 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. National Volunteers’ Week is fast approaching and because we won’t be able to celebrate it with our Annual Volunteers’ Day so we needed to do things slightly differently…
What are we doing?
This year, the campaign will focus on sharing volunteering stories – highlighting the amazing things volunteers are doing at these difficult times.
We’ve asked Volunteers and Voluntary Organisations across Wrexham County Borough to share videos and case studies throughout the week. We’ll share these on our Social Media channels including Facebook and Twitter.
Throughout the week we’ll be sharing some of the Facts and Figures from the Third Sector and from Wrexham Volunteer Centre. These Infographics will help provide a picture of the generosity of volunteers in our communities and remind us all of their important work.
You can follow this campaign through the hashtag #FindTheVolunteerInYou. We’re also inviting volunteers to post a picture of them in their role, and allow us all to say Thank You for the millions of hours, thousands of people contribute in hundreds of ways in our communities.
Wrexham Volunteer Centre is hosting two events on Tuesday 2nd June.
Virtual Volunteer Drop-in
In the morning, they are hosting their first Virtual Volunteer Drop-in. This will give potential volunteers the opportunity to talk to organisations making a difference in the local area.
Volunteers’ Week Tea Party
In the afternoon, they are hosting a Virtual Tea Party. Anyone can join us to say Thank You to volunteers. Unfortunately, we can’t supply the cake this year, but we’ll be waiting with the applause!
Find out more about our Volunteers’ Week events on our website or on our social media channels.
If you see one of our campaigns, please share to show appreciation for the work of volunteers. We’re also hoping to be able to host another celebration later in the year on 5th December, International Volunteers’ Day. Keep an eye on our website for more details
