For one week only, National Volunteers' week gives us the opportunity, across the country, to thank each other for making a difference to the world we live in and empowering others to hopefully do the same.

What the Friends wrote
FIrst of all. THANK YOU. We don't do what we do for thanks but it is jolly nice to receive some, especially when they are expressed not just by us to each other, but by others to us. So well done volunteers. You truly do make a difference. You are kind, you are caring and you are compassionate. The Friends is very, very grateful to have you as one of our number.
What the hospital wrote
The contribution of volunteers is often unseen and unrecognised by many, visible only through the incredible impact of their volunteering. However, the coronavirus pandemic has rightly raised the profile of volunteering and more people than ever are aware of the immense contribution being made every single day by Britain’s volunteers. That is why, on this 37th annual #VolunteersWeek and during the #MonthofCommunity, it’s time to say: thank you volunteers!
