It’s Volunteer Week!

Volunteers’ Week runs every year from 1-7 June and is a chance to recognise the fantastic contribution volunteers make in their communities as well as saying a special ‘thank you’. MYMY would like to take this opportunity to thank our very own volunteers, who freely give up their time with one goal – to help others. “Our volunteers play a huge part in everything we do, from managing the charity, to working and befriending in the charity shop, to helping with fundraising and events. Their weekly volunteer hours are worth over £400 per week to the charity. We cannot thank them enough for being so generous with their time. Our volunteers also find it an incredibly valuable experience which has improved their own well-being”. Several of our volunteers have spoken about the benefits of offering their services; including how MYMY “gives them a reason to get out of the house”, that people like meeting new friends, and that they feel they are “doing something useful”.

During volunteers week, we hope to inspire other would-be volunteers to join our team and meet new people, build their confidence, learn new skills and gain work experience for a course or your CV.
