In­valu­able vol­un­teers

Argyllshire Advertiser - - YOUR VIEWS -

Sir, As we cel­e­brate Vol­un­teers’ Week, I’d like to recog­nise the in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion of vol­un­teers.

It is es­ti­mated as many as 15.2 mil­lion peo­ple vol­un­teer at least once a month in the UK?

I work for Re­vi­talise – a na­tional char­ity that pro­vides respite hol­i­days for dis­abled peo­ple and car­ers. We are also proud to run the largest res­i­den­tial vol­un­teer­ing pro­gramme of any UK char­ity, wel­com­ing thou­sands of vol­un­teers ev­ery year from all over the world.

Our vol­un­teers work in­cred­i­bly hard to help us to pro­vide our guests with mem­o­rable hol­i­day ex­pe­ri­ences and it is thanks to their vi­brancy that we can cre­ate the unique hol­i­day at­mos­phere so many of our guests have come to know and love. We are thank­ful for the sup­port of our vol­un­teers and are proud to of­fer in­spi­ra­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties all year round.

Stephanie Stone, Lon­don.
