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.

These events will be an opportunity to thank volunteers for their commitment and will be a chance for volunteers to meet other community groups and charities alike. Many of the organisations funded by Copeland Community Fund are reliant on volunteers and whose achievements are often much too much overlooked.
