Volunteers’ Week is fast approaching us, and we are accepting nominations for this years’ Awards Ceremony from Monday 12th March. It has been another incredible year of volunteering locally, and with The Year of Young People in full swing, we are keen to have a focus on our young people throughout the year, and beyond!
As the saying goes “You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give”. In Clackmannanshire, we can certainly see evidence of this giving in our communities, and the benefits that giving can reap to those who dedicate their time to others. Volunteers, and Volunteer Involving Organisations enhance our communities, local services, their lives, and touch the lives of others. So once again we are coming together this Volunteers’ Week to celebrate this life and energy in our communities.
This year, our ceremony will be held on Friday 1st June, from 6:30pm at Alloa Town Hall. It is sure to be an evening of entertainment and celebration for those invited. We have eleven different categories that volunteers/groups can be nominated and receive recognition for.
