This year Volunteer Centre Sandwell supported by Sandwell Council & The Big Lottery will be hosting a “Thank You Volunteer’s Lunch” @ West Bromwich Albion FC on Friday 3rd June from 12noon. Approximately 200 local volunteers will be invited to attend.
On the same day the official launch of The Hands on Project will give individuals the opportunity to ask questions about the aims and objectives of the Big Lottery 5 year funded project.
Following lunch, there will be entertainment in the form of a 6 round Volunteer Quiz Challenge.
Chief Executive Officer Jean Taylor said. “We know that there are many unsung individuals who have been working away tirelessly to help maintain and enhance the fabric of our society. Honouring their achievements is not only a just reward for them – it is also a great platform for the local media to showcase the contribution local voluntary organisations make to the life of our community.”
Now more than ever volunteers are an increasingly valuable resource and are often seen as a response to supporting statutory and community services. The value of volunteers is to be celebrated, and this year in Sandwell we endeavour to make it a momentous occasion.
Look out for our flyer with booking details to be circulated w/c 4th April 2016.
