Volunteers Week 2022

May 2022

25 years of making a difference. Today marks the start of Volunteers week and we wanted to share a HUGE THANK YOU, for all you do, we really couldn't do it without you. 

Creative Writing Challenge!

Some of our volunteers got together to do some fun creative writing with National Volunteer Manager, Veronica. We believe that wellbeing activities and social community building is an important part of a volunteers’ journey. The writing activity had two parts – one was to allocate a word to each letter of the word V-O-L-U-N-T-E-E-R. The second part of the challenge was to use as many of their words from part 1 in a piece of writing. All participants opted to write about volunteering with some incredibly powerful results. Thank you for your lovely words, here's just a few!
