Thank you for celebrating Volunteers’ Week 2017 with us!

On Monday 5 June we hosted our Brent Volunteering Fair, with the aim of celebrating the volunteering which happens in Brent and helping more people find volunteer opportunities.

Thank you every organisation and volunteer who came to our Volunteering Fair! 

Over twenty local organisations came together to promote their volunteering opportunities, and over one hundred members of the general public attended the event. It was such a pleasure to see so many people coming together to find ways of supporting their communities.

This year’s Volunteers’ Week was aimed at recognising and thanking volunteers: "you make the difference"

We had an awards ceremony to recognise existing volunteers.

Attendees of the fair were invited to participate in a micro-volunteering activity - making seed parcels which could then be taken away or donated to Sufra NW London’s Edible Garden.

Please see below for a list of the organisations who were present on the day, and thank you to all our partners and supporters for their continued dedication to volunteering in Brent. Take a look at the social media from the day to find out more.
