Nick Clegg Supports National Volunteers Week

national volunteers weekNational Volunteers Week has just come to an end; running from 1st to 7th of June, the annual event celebrates the hard work put in by volunteers to improve the lives of others. Charity work often goes unnoticed unless it is a huge publicised event, but the truth is that every day people are giving their time and their energy to make a difference all over the world.

Nick Clegg, the deputy Prime Minister, has given his support for National Volunteers Week stating “Volunteering is a fantastic way for people to give something back but also to learn new skills, make new friends and perhaps take a first step back into employment.” A sentiment shared by volunteers and their supporters alike. As well as giving recognition to volunteers, the event also offers information and resources to those inspired to devote some of their time and skills to a charitable cause.
