Volunteers in Copeland are set to be recognised by the Copeland Community Fund as part of National Volunteers Week.
Volunteers’ Week is is a national and annual week aimed at celebrating and raising the profile of the millions of volunteers who regularly contribute to society, while inspiring others to also get involved.
The events will take place on Monday, 5th June at the Whitehaven Golf Club, Red Lonning, Whitehaven, and on Thursday, 8th June at the Millom Rugby League Club, Devonshire Road, both from 5.3-8.00pm.
