Published on 04 May 2021 08:56 PM

Volunteers' week 2021 is from 1st to 7th June. Charities across the UK will be holding events to thank their volunteers and celebrate the power of volunteering.

In 2019 there were over 600 events across the country, from award ceremonies to tea parties and barbecues.
For many charities the week will be a chance to showcase the range of volunteering opportunities on offer. Volunteer fairs and other events will be helping people find out how, through volunteering, they can make a difference to a cause they are passionate about, and maybe encourage them to try volunteering for the first time.

Age UK North Tyneside have a thriving group of 160 enthusiastic volunteers who together contributed to helping over 2,700 older people in their community. Over the last year they excelled themselves by helping, supporting many of the charity’s essential services and especially outreaching to those who are isolated and lonely.
