Liz thanks those who volunteer in our local community

[09/06/2019 | No comment]

Last week was Volunteers’ Week so I popped along to Voluntary Action LeicesterShire to thank some of the fabulous volunteers who give up some of their free time to help others in their local community.

Volunteers play such an important role, and many charities and organisations simply would not survive if it wasn’t for dedicated volunteers like the ones I met today – they are a real inspiration.

But volunteering is more than just giving back, many of the volunteers I met told me how becoming a volunteer has helped them overcome anxiety and mental health problems, helped them build new friendships, grow in confidence and even find work.

To find out more about volunteering in your local community visit Voluntary Action LeicesterShire or call them on 0116 257 5050
