Three Rivers has been encouraging residents to try volunteering and help them find out how, through volunteering, they can make a difference to a cause they are passionate about.
Sara Bedford, Leader of the Council, said: “I would like to personally thank all the volunteers who are involved in helping our communities. Year in, year out they make a real difference to the lives of other residents and the spirit of local communities. As a volunteer myself, I know the benefits that volunteering brings to the volunteer, as well as to the local area.
“This year we need to celebrate Volunteers Week albeit in a different way. Wherever you volunteer, whether with young people, vulnerable adults, the environment, or a myriad of other ways, your contributions to your community are appreciated now more than ever.”
