Volunteers Week takes place each year and was held this year between June 1 and 12.
It is co-ordinated by Volunteer Scotland and is celebrated by voluntary organisations across the country to recognise the contribution that volunteers make to UK society.
The day was attended by befriending and handyperson volunteers from Rutherglen and Cambuslang as well as volunteers from R:evolve Recycle.
One befriender volunteer from Cambuslang said: “A very big thank you all for a lovely afternoon. The film, tea, bingo and raffle was excellent and so enjoyable.”
Iain English, Hands On Project Manager for Rutherglen and Cambuslang, said: “Thank you to all of our volunteers who give up their time throughout the year.
“Thank you also to the organisations who made donations and made our volunteer thank you event possible, in particular to Waitrose Newton Mearns who sent some staff along on the day to help out at the event.”
