What you say about Volunteers' Week

This is your chance to say thank you, in a different way, to your volunteers

Shelley Hart, CEO of Havering Volunteer Centre

Volunteers’ Week reminds us all to take the time to say thank you to the millions of volunteers who give their time to improve the lives of their friends and neighbours. From trustees to fundraisers and mentors to befrienders, thank you all for making our communities a happier place to be.
