This year during Volunteers’ Week Contact the Elderly wants to take the opportunity to thank its volunteers and acknowledge that due to their support the charity now has 640 groups throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
Volunteers’ Week is an annual event which takes place from 1st to 12th June to celebrate the contribution made by millions of volunteers across the UK. Contact the Elderly knows just how important these people are, acting as the backbone of the charity.
Mary Rance, CEO, Contact the Elderly, said:
“We would like to take a moment this Volunteers’ Week to thank each and every one of our dedicated 9000 volunteers for all they do.
“The time they donate simply doesn’t reflect what it brings to the lives of our guests, and without our compassionate drivers, hosts, coordinators and area organisers, Contact the Elderly wouldn’t exist.
“We are over the moon to be able to say that we now have 640 groups across England, Scotland and Wales, and it is all down to our volunteers' support. Thank you to everyone that offers up their time to make one afternoon a month special for so many people.”
