VOLUNTEERS: Support work is incredible

This Volunteers’ Week, I wanted to formally say thank you to all of our volunteers for the amazing work they do supporting older people in England.

Without our 25,000 volunteers in England, Royal Voluntary Service couldn’t operate. The work they do, whether it’s in our hospital shops and cafes or within the community, is essential to making sure the lives of older people are enriched and that they are better connected to others and their communities.

Volunteers’ Week is a great opportunity to highlight the role our army of volunteers play, who without making a fuss or asking for any special recognition, give their time so generously to others.

I’m taken aback every day by the support the charity receives and would like to thank all of our volunteers for their incredible work and all of your readers who support and welcome their efforts.
