New Chief Executive for Belfast City Council supports Volunteers' Week 2014

01 May 2014

This year, in Northern Ireland, we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Volunteersí Week and a range of activities are planned to highlight the campaign.

New Chief Executive Designate for Belfast City Council, Suzanne Wylie supports Volunteers' Week 2014.

Volunteer involving organisations throughout Northern Ireland are invited to order FREE resources to help them recognise and thank the volunteers in their community as part of Volunteers’ Week 1–7 June.   

Wendy Osborne, Chief Executive, Volunteer Now said,  ”The message for Volunteers’ Week is ‘Time to say thank you.’  There are currently over a quarter of a million volunteers in Northern Ireland who all play a vital role; from volunteer drivers to sports coaches, from hospital volunteers to those working in charity shops.  Volunteers’ Week gives us the opportunity to shine the spotlight on these volunteers and give them the recognition and thanks they deserve.” 

She added: “We hope voluntary and community groups and charities will order the special volunteer pins, certificates and banners (free to volunteer involving organisations in Northern Ireland) to support their participation in Volunteers’ Week ”

Groups can access these resources by downloading the order form here or contact: Sandra.Faulkner@volunteernow.co.uk.
