Volunteer Centre Salford is hosting Volunteers’ Week 2021 from 1- 7 June in honour of the amazing contribution from volunteers.
The Volunteer Centre Salford (or VCS for short) is offering ‘a time to say thanks’ to those who have been volunteering in the Salford community.
VCS is offering mugs filled with chocolate throughout the week to say ‘thank you’ to the volunteers for helping throughout the year.
Certificates are also being handed out to recognize the contribution that the volunteers’ have offered over the last year.
If you want to get involved certificate templates are available on the Salford VCS website to print and post. These certificates can be awarded to volunteers based on their length of service, the number of hours worked, the amount of dedication contributed, or as a token of thanks!
VCS will be sharing a variety of volunteer stories and experiences on their Twitter. You can also get involved by sharing your volunteer story on Twitter using the #VolunteersWeek.
A big thank you to all of our volunteers this #VolunteersWeek.
