Over 21 million people volunteer in the UK at least once a year and this contributes an estimated £23.9bn to the UK economy. Behind these big numbers is a big contribution.
These 21 million people are a shining example of how we can all make a big difference to individuals and communities every day from improving the environment we live in, spending time with those who may otherwise be lonely and contributing to a range of other essential services and support. We believe such a big contribution is worth a big celebration!
In order to support National Volunteers’ Week (1st -12th June) and reward our local volunteers, we will be running a series of competitions at our forthcoming events when you visit our stand including; the chance to win a free family photo shoot at Herts County Show, £30 worth of vouchers for Lussman Restaurants at Hitchin Health and Wellbeing Event (11th June) and a free family pass to Standalone Farm at Stevenage Day (12th June) as well as giveaways on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
