Volunteers play a vital role in the community and Stockport Homes are joining a national campaign to recognise the dedication of those who give up their time for free.
National Volunteers’ Week, which is run by The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) takes place from 1 - 7 June 2017. Stockport Homes will be recognising and celebrating the contributions volunteers make across Stockport.
On Monday 5th June, volunteers from across Stockport Homes, H3 (Helping the Homeless into Housing) and Your Local Pantry will join together to receive recognition of their hard work and celebrate their joint contributions.
Stockport Homes will then be gathering together on Tuesday 6th June with organisations that provide volunteering opportunities across Stockport to showcase new opportunities and encourage more people to get involved.
Robin Burman, Chair of Stockport Homes’ Board said:
Volunteers play a significant role and give up their valuable free time to help out in our communities. Without their help we wouldn’t be able to run projects like Your Local Pantry, which help people who are struggling to buy basic grocery items. We’re proud to be supporting Volunteers’ Week and to recognise these dedicated volunteers.
