Volunteer Week 2018 has arrived

On Friday 1st June Volunteer Week 2018 started.

To start the week off we celebrated with a Volunteer Thank You strawberry tea - with over 50 people attended including Damian Green MP.

A BIG thank you to all our volunteers who make a real difference to people live's across the Borough of Ashford - we couldn't do it without you!

Many thanks to Specsavers in Ashford for sponsoring the event and making it possible - that was brilliant!

Thank you!

Brave volunteers take the plunge!

The big jump is now done! 

Braving the weather, heights, fear of heights and the unknown Lee, Sally and Helen undertook the charity abseil, at St Thomas Place in Maidstone, on 8th April 2018.

The trio successfully raised over £1000 for charity in the process - what a fantastic achievement and thank you!!

Volunteers Week 2018 - coming soon!

Volunteers’ Week is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make.
During the week, hundreds of events and celebrations take place across the country, saying thank you to volunteers and recognising their invaluable and diverse contribution to the UK.
Here you’ll find inspiring volunteering stories, ways to get involved in the week, and free downloadable resources to help make your celebrations a success.
The campaign was established in 1984 by Volunteering England, which merged with NCVO in 2013. NCVO now leads this UK-wide campaign.
