Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June 2021) is an annual UK-wide celebration of the contribution that millions of wonderful people make through volunteering. To mark the week, we handed over the keys to the Virtual Village Hall to volunteers and NHS Volunteer Responders to showcase their fantastic skills and talents.
Royal Voluntary Service Chief Executive, Catherine Johnstone CBE, launched the Volunteer Takeover and reflected on the last year, thanking volunteers for their remarkable contribution and highlighting the forthcoming Thank You Day on 4th July, a nationwide day of thanks for those in local communities that have helped us though the pandemic.
Throughout the Volunteers’ Week Takeover from 1-7 June, volunteers hosted a wide range of free classes and activities to join in with at home. From dancing to crafts, singing to Yoga, there was something for everyone to try.
You'll be able to catch up with all the session later on Facebook, or here on the Virtual Village Hall.
