One Westminster's programme for Volunteers' Week

21 May 2019

To honour the 35th year of Volunteer's Week, we've arranged more drop-in events than ever before, and there's even a gardening day and a market stall in Church Street.

Organised in the UK by the National Council of Volunteering Organisations, the aim of the week is to recognise, celebrate and thank volunteers as well as encourage people across the country to do the same. As important is to increase participation in and raise the profile of volunteering.

One Westminster Volunteering Services manager Nigel Barber says: "We'd like to thank each and every one of our fantastic dedicated volunteers for all the time and effort they put in. We hope to encourage more people to volunteer in the course of the week - so do come along and bring your friends too."
