Almost all charities and community groups rely on volunteers, and Volunteers’ Week (1st – 7th June) is an annual opportunity to celebrate the contribution that they make to the local community. What are you going to do to thank your volunteers and show they are appreciated? For ideas and inspiration visit: http://volunteersweek.org
