National Volunteers Week - 1st - 7th June 2020
Jun, 4 2020
It takes a certain someone to do an act of kindness without asking for anything in return. Individuals who give their time, their skills and resources to an organisation are known as volunteers. They are not driven by selfish ego, they are moved by genuine love and appreciation for the people they’re working for.
From 1st - 7th June is National Volunteers Week 2020, it’s an ideal opportunity to applaud and accolade the wonderful work being done by volunteers across Lancashire.
