How we Celebrated Volunteers Week

Published on 01 June 2024 05:49 PM

For National Volunteers' Week 2024 (3-10 June) at Age Cymru Dyfed we celebrated across West Wales with a series of events. We couldn't help Dyfed love later life without the support and dedication of our volunteers. And we are always keen to enrol more help, so that we can continue to deliver our projects across West Wales.

Age Cymru Dyfed's Volunteering Manager Lynne Meredith said;

"Age Cymru Dyfed planned a series of promotional walks and events across the week to say thank you to our current volunteers, including in Llanelli, Llandysul and Whitland. Also a stand at Scolton Manor craft fair last Friday in Pembrokeshire and Bronglais Hospital Aberystwyth on 5th June.

"As well, stands at the Connecting Carmarthenshire events for those who may want to talk to us about Volunteering in person, which is always welcome.

Many people think volunteering is not an option for them, maybe due to busy schedules and lives. Giving as little as two hours a week of your time can be hugely beneficial and really does help to make a difference.

"We provide training, pay all out of pocket expenses and the personal rewards helping people, being part of a community and learning new skills are invaluable."

Here are some photos from across the week including volunteering hero Pat Lewis receiving a Certificate for Outstanding Contribution as a Volunteer, presented by Geena Ware, at Cwmaman Community Centre.
