Celebrating volunteers

A SERIES of events will be held in North Somerset to celebrate the work of volunteers.

Individuals and organisations from across the district will be getting together as part of this year’s national Volunteers’ Week, which runs from June 1-7.

In Clevedon, Volunteer of the Year awards will be put on at The Barn in Great Western Road from 12noon-2pm on June 2. Anyone wanting to attend needs to book a place.

In Portishead, a children and young peopl group’s information day will take place at The Piazza in Harbour Road from 10am-3pm on June 4.

The events have been arranged by Volunteer Centre North Somerset, which is a service provided by the Weston-based Voluntary Action North Somerset.

Coordinator Donna Cleeve said: “Volunteers’ Week provides us with an opportunity to recognise the contribution made to society by volunteers through a series of local events, as well as giving people who may be interested in volunteering a chance to find out about vacancies.”
