Volunteers’ Week is the biggest week in the volunteering calendar and recognises the contribution of local volunteers.  Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of volunteering! We hope you will join in and help to make this Volunteers’ Week one of the best to date.

This year, Volunteers’ Week will be held from 1-12 June 2016 (the extra week being included in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday) and will focus on ‘The Big Celebration’. We will be highlighting stories of individuals who already volunteer for us and who have made a huge difference within communities across Wales through their volunteering effort. It’s a real chance to celebrate and recognise our volunteers and invite others to take part.

We are delighted that Volunteers’ Week has been extended – even more reason to celebrate those wonderful individuals who offer their time to help others.  Dozens of individuals with all sorts of skills play a vital role in supporting SNAP Cymru to help children and families. We have volunteer family supporters, telephone helpline advisers, social media and marketing or fundraising experts, administrators, Van drivers, warehouse support, retail volunteers in our charity shops and many many, more.  Volunteering Week gives us the opportunity to shine the spotlight on these volunteers and give them the recognition and thanks they deserve.

We will be profiling some of our volunteers on our Facebook, please have a look and share with others www.facebook.com/SNAPCymru/

We are always looking for more volunteers and are particularly targeting volunteers to help families on our helpline.  To sign up or for more info
