Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the fantastic contribution, millions of volunteers make across the UK – and it’s taking place from the 1-12 June 2016.
TCV will be running activities right across the country, so there will be lots of opportunities for you to get involved.
We run activities in both urban and rural areas, from planting trees and wild flower meadows, to building stiles, clearing footpaths or creating new food growing projects. There are also lots of fun half-term activities for all the family such as the Buggin’ About and Wild Crews.
What I really liked about TCV is that it provided me with new, wider and bigger challenges – I learned to do things I never had before. The activities vary a lot too, which keeps it interesting. And on top of all this, TCV is a great way to socialise and meet people from all walks of life.
Volunteering has led me to return to working with children, which I am finding hugely enjoyable. I have also met people on the same “wavelength”, and enjoyed their company. I don’t really have any goals, other than to enjoy a happy, active retirement and avoid the perils of becoming a Grumpy Old Woman!
I volunteer with TCV because it just seemed such a brilliant idea: get fit; be sociable; do good for the countryside; learn new skills; have fun - all in one.
Thank-you to all our volunteers – past, present and future - all of you have supported our work to create healthy and happy communities for everyone.
Join in, feel good.
