National Volunteers' Week celebrates the brilliant role of volunteers. Now more than ever we want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that gives their time.
Please join us on Thursday at 8pm as we #CheerForTheVolunteers
BCP Council Leader Vikki Slade, said: “Virtually everyone has been a volunteer at some stage or been helped out themselves by a big hearted individual, so we want everyone to come out in support next Thursday. Give a cheer, bang a saucepan and make some extra noise! Let’s celebrate the wonderful and generous spirited communities that exist out there including our own #TogetherWeCan campaign as none of us would be without them. Please join me and thousands of others and come out to share our support for our amazing volunteers.”
