In this June edition of our Volunteer Bulletin, we're celebrating Volunteers Week 2022 and joining organisations across the Borough to thank volunteers who make such a difference to people’s lives.
Every day thousands of people across West Lancs help others in their community by volunteering. It may be a formal volunteering role with a local organisation, or helping to run the local community group, or it could be helping their older neighbour next door.
They all play a vital part in making sure families get fed, new people are welcomed, sick people get the provisions they need, people have green spaces to enjoy, lonely people have someone to connect to.
The coronavirus pandemic has raised the profile of volunteering and more people than ever are aware of the immense contribution being made every single day by volunteers. This crucial contribution has not stopped, despite the uncertain times we find ourselves in, and will continue to be an important part of the Borough’s recovery.
Volunteers do it for little thanks, with no fanfare, and we’d be lost without them. That’s why, on this 38th annual Volunteers Week, we join with organisations across the Borough to say: THANK YOU volunteers!
