Today is the day

What a beautiful day to mark the beginning of Volunteers' Week. The sun is shining, it really lifts your mood doesn't it?

So, this sunny day is the first day of a week celebrating the huge efforts of our volunteers. The official Volunteers' Week website is a great place to see what's going on up and down the country giving volunteers some appreciation for all their efforts.

We run our own projects and from everyone at TimeBank we'd like say a massive THANK YOU to all our volunteers - past and present for the difference they've made to people's lives. Here's what one of our mentees from our Back to Life project had to say about having a volunteer support him:

"I've made such a massive improvement since I've been meeting Emma. Having a mentor though is the perfect supplement to everything I get from my nurse and therapy."

So, if you're a volunteer - don't keep it quiet, tell someone about it. You can review your volunteering on our website -  someone else can see what you really think about your volunteering and perhaps it'll inspire them to get involved.....next year we want to be thanking even more volunteers.
