40 Years of Volunteers Week

We are thrilled to announce the start of the 40th annual Volunteers’ Week, a special event dedicated to celebrating the incredible contributions of volunteers in our community. This year’s theme, “Celebrating 40 Years of Volunteering,” highlights the transformative power of volunteering and its profound impact over the decades.


Event Details:
• Location: West Bridgford Library, Pod

Volunteers’ Week is an exciting opportunity for us to come together and recognise the selfless efforts of individuals who dedicate their time and energy to making a difference. Whether you’re a seasoned volunteer or someone considering giving back for the first time, this week is packed with opportunities to learn, connect, and get involved.


Why Volunteer?

Volunteering offers numerous benefits, not just for the community but also for the volunteers themselves. It provides a sense of purpose, fosters new relationships, and can even enhance your career prospects. By volunteering, you can:

  • Make a tangible impact: Your efforts can directly benefit those in need and contribute to meaningful change.
  • Gain new skills: Volunteering can help you develop new skills and experiences that are valuable in both personal and professional settings.
  • Connect with your community: It’s a great way to meet new people, build friendships, and strengthen your ties to the local area.

Available from 9am to 6pm every day this week Monday 3 June to Friday 7 June, our Coordinator is here to answer all your questions, provide guidance, and help you find the perfect volunteering opportunity that matches your interests and skills.
