Are you tired of doing the same old thing for Volunteers’ Week? How many ways can there be to recognise and saying thank you to volunteers, you may ask. The answer is – very many different ways.
A new publication on the WCVA website will give you fresh ideas.
based on the stories of what other organisations have previously
done for Volunteers' Week.
In the format of a series of recipe cards 'Recipes for a
successful Volunteers' Week' describes what was done, for what
purpose, with what result and how costs were kept down. There
are even suggestions as to 'what we would do differently next
time', since we all can learn from experience.
Recipes for a successful Volunteers' Week can be downloaded here, free of charge.
This year's theme for Volunteers' Week is Volunteering for
all. The ideas in this collection might help you to reach
different target audiences in different ways.
We will be pleased to hear from you if you try out any of these
ideas yourself and to know how they went. If you have similar
stories to share, we will be glad to publicise them too, in time to
inspire others for for Volunteers' Week 2019!
Our Volunteers' Week
page includes a number of useful resources to support the Week,
including, the Logo, Volunteers' Week certificates, and a poster
