Celebrating Volunteers’ Week 2019

As is tradition during the first week of June, Volunteers’ Week is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make.

Charities across the UK will be holding events to celebrate the power of volunteering and last year, over 600 events took place across the country.

We will be celebrating the difference volunteers make to Empanda and every day this week, we will share a story that showcases the wonderful and invaluable role they play in our organisation.

Sally Hanlin, managing director said, ” We are indebted to our volunteers who give their time to support our many customers whilst enhancing the work of our staff team. We are delighted to be supporting Volunteers’ Week which gives us an opportunity to shout about the fantastic contribution our volunteers make to our organisation and more importantly, to the lives of the many people who use our services.”

We are hoping that by reading our stories, we will encourage people to try volunteering for the first time and to find out how, through volunteering, they can make a real difference.
