Welcome to National Volunteers Week 2016

1st June 2016

This week, 1 – 12 June, is National Volunteers’ Week – an annual celebration of the contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK

Volunteer week one

When better to celebrate all of our volunteering heroes, recognising the range of activities and hard work they do to raise vital funds and awareness?

At Meningitis Now, volunteering comes in many forms, from handing out flyers to giving talks to raise awareness, and everything in between. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in dedicating their time to support meningitis sufferers. All these people are amazing and their contribution is priceless.

We will be sharing something different every day throughout volunteers’ week so keep your eyes peeled for first-hand accounts from our own volunteers and fun new ways you can get involved too.
