Want to get involved? Drop Alys an email on Why are we organising this event? We want everyone who currently volunteers in Crystal Palace to feel thanked and appreciated for their time and energy contributed, and by partnering up with other organisations in the community that they feel part of something bigger. It also means that potentially under-resourced organisations who work with volunteers are supported to celebrate & recruit volunteers. We also want to let the wider Crystal Palace community more aware of the important work volunteers do, and hopefully increase participation in volunteering in the area
