We are here to support, promote and develop voluntary and community action in Middlesbrough

Volunteers' Week 2017

Celebrating Volunteers' Week 2017 in South Tees

If volunteers make a difference to your charity, community or organisation then make sure you’ve got Volunteers’ Week 1-7 June in your diary! It’s the annual campaign to be part of, to thank your volunteers and celebrate the difference they make.

This year, we are marking the week by publishing the stories of seven local volunteers; celebrating the difference they make to the organisations they volunteer with and inspiring others to discover more about volunteering in their communities. Click on the images below to read each volunteering experience and join us in sharing their stories each day as we promote them on our South Tees Voices for Volunteering Facebook page.
