National Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week celebrates the importance of volunteering in New Zealand and the goodwill of the people who give up their time for it. The theme for this year is: Volunteers, The Heart of our Community – By many, the work will be completed, Mā tini, mā mano, ka rapa te whai. The aim is to remind people of the central and inseparable role of people in keeping volunteering alive.
While the number of Kiwis involved in volunteering has increased over the past decade, the amount of hours worked has decreased. This means, now more than ever, the immensely positive impact of volunteering, felt throughout our communities, the economy and the people themselves needs to be highlighted. Hospice relies heavily on Volunteers to provide the level of care and support required in our community, if you are interested in Volunteering and giving the gift of time, please contact us email@example.com - or phone 09 421 9180.
National Volunteer Week 2018 will be happening over June 17-23.
