Volunteer Week (June 2020)
Volunteers Week is celebrated between 1st and 7th June every year. It is a week in which the UK celebrates volunteers and says thank you to them for the contribution that they make. The week also raises awareness about the benefits becoming a volunteer and the diverse volunteering roles that are available.
As well as helping others, Volunteering has been shown to have a positive impact on the lives of those who volunteer, assisting volunteers in gaining new skills and boosting self-esteem. There are many voluntary organisations in the UK that rely on volunteers to help others. Including ours.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteer for their hard work and commitment they give us.
THANK YOU !!
Food Parcel Project (May 2020)
In May 2020, we were awarded £5,000 to deliver an 8-week project to assist in the coronavirus relief efforts for the people of Carr Mill, Clinkham Wood and Moss Bank. 95% of this money was spent on several in-bulk food orders from Aldi Stores in Newton-le-Willows. The rest covered our volunteers’ travel costs, cardboard boxes, bags and printing.
We would like to thank all of the new volunteers who have supported us over the past several weeks. 12 local people responded to our call for help and freely gave their time, energy and community spirit to help alleviate the impact of the virus.
As a recipient, many of you have provided some lovely feedback which has certainly inspired and warmed their hearts.
