Thank you to volunteers
Volunteering Bay of Plenty is recognising and rewarding volunteers in the community with a celebration breakfast in Tauranga on Tuesday, June 19, as part of National VolunteerWeek (June 17-23).
The theme for 2018 is ‘Volunteers, the heart of our community’which captures the essence of what volunteering is about — how volunteer’s efforts, compassion and time provide a significant contribution and enrich communities.
Generalmanager Theo Ursum says they understand that often volunteer coordinators are doing more in an organisation than justmanaging volunteers “so this is an easy way for them to say thank you without blowing the budget”.
“Thanks to some wonderful supporters, we have amazing spot prizes to give away, for example, two nights accommodation for two inNapier.”
Registrations are open to member and non-member not for profit organisations but spaces are limited. Email email@example.com for more information and to register.
There may be a small cost to attend depending on your level of membership of Volbop.
Volbop is the one-stop-shop for volunteering in the Bay and can help organisations develop their volunteer programme.
“Whether volunteers work locally as community gardeners, or on the sports fields, or as aidworkers, they are part of the global movement of volunteers. It is important to recognise volunteering and the place it has in keeping our communities strong and healthy.”
