Volunteers' Week

Today marks the start of Volunteers' Week 2019!

Volunteers' Week is a chance to celebrate and say thank you for the fantastic contribution thousands of volunteers make across the county.

The celebration takes place 1-7 June every year and is an opportunity to celebrate volunteering in all its diversity. As well as helping others, volunteering has been shown to improve volunteers' wellbeing too. It's human nature to feel good after helping someone out. Volunteering can also help you gain valuable new skills and experiences, and boost your confidence.

Throughout the week we will be sharing volunteering stories, resources and guidance on our social media channels, be sure to check out our volunteer's selfie videos to find out why they love volunteering.

Already a volunteer? Why not let us know why you love volunteering! Tweet your "I love volunteering because..." selfie videos to @NorthYorksSport and use #VolunteersWeek.
