New voluntary opportunities at some of the borough’s charity groups will be announced as part of a national week of action.

Community group Voluntary Action Harrow will be celebrating national Volunteers Week by saying a big 'thank you' to as many volunteers in the borough as possible.

The week from June 1 to June 7 aims to recognise and celebrate the dedicated work of volunteers across the country.

Voluntary Action Harrow will be announcing some new volunteer opportunities and a new project which will be getting more young people into volunteering through trusteeship.

Alex Buckmire, member of Voluntary Action Harrow, said "Working with so many different volunteers around the borough is a hugely rewarding experience.

“There are over 900 voluntary and community organisations in Harrow with thousands of volunteers working to support activities, groups and people.

“The volunteers I meet deserve recognition for their hard work and efforts in supporting people in crisis."

Voluntary Action Harrow helps and supports the running of charity and voluntary groups in the borough.
