1st - 7th June
Volunteers' Week (1st - 7th June) is an opportunity to recognise the contribution volunteers make to our communities and a time to say thank you for everything that they do. Our partners at Volunteer Centre Sutton are hosting an array of events throughout the week to give thanks to those who volunteer in Sutton, raise awareness of the impact they have made and promote the volunteering opportunities available.
If you are out and about in Sutton that week, then please keep an eye on the screen outside the Sound Lounge, where we will be featured, alongside other local partners, as part of a 'thank you showreel', sharing our thanks and appreciation for our volunteers.
You will also get the chance to visit us at the 'Meet the public' event on Tuesday 1st June, 9:30am - 11:30am. You can learn more about Sutton Carers Centre and the volunteering opportunities we have available. We can't wait to see you all there!
Please see below the outline of events for that week. If you would like to find out more about Volunteers' Week 2021, then please click here. If you need further support and information, then please email Jo Dawson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
