Volunteers' Week 2020
1st Jun 2020

It's Volunteers' Week and we'd like to say a big thank you to all the amazing volunteers across Somerset!

There’s never been a better time to #CheerForVolunteers!

Through our Cuppa Campaign, we’re reminding hardworking volunteers that 'you can’t pour from an empty cup'. We’ll be encouraging them to enjoy some well-earned ‘me time’ with a nice cup of tea on us, and sharing some self-care tips and good news stories on our social media throughout the week.

If you’re thinking about how to attract more volunteers to your organisation, join us live for our Volunteer Showcase at 10am on Thursday 4th June. We've invited some special guests to talk about some of the ways you can make it easier for people to volunteer, whether that's virtually, from home, or on a one-off or short-term basis. Register here.

We know that usual Volunteers’ Week events aren’t possible at the moment so we’re hosting a virtual quiz for volunteers at 4pm on Friday 5th June - just a bit of lighthearted fun and to show our appreciation! Register here.

We wish you a happy, safe and enjoyable Volunteers' Week. Please remember to let us know what you’re up to by tagging us on social media and using the hashtag #CheerForVolunteers.
