Each year New Zealand celebrates National Volunteer Week to recognise and celebrate the vital contribution of New Zealand’s approximately 1.2 million volunteers in areas as diverse as social development, the economy and the environment. To celebrate National Volunteer Week (17-23 June 2018), Volunteer Resource Centre Manawatu will host a Recognition Event for volunteers in our region. They are looking for stories that resonate – why people are volunteering, the impact on the volunteer, the impact on the organisations and communities they are volunteering for. All nominees will receive a Certificate of Appreciation and will be invited to celebrate with the wider community. Visit the website for information and nomination forms.
