Stephen Metcalfe, Member of Parliament for South Basildon and East Thurrock, is joining with local charities and voluntary groups to celebrate Volunteers’ Week 2019.
11.8 million people formally volunteered once a month last year. From trustees or campaigners to carers and fundraisers, volunteers make a huge and unique contribution to their local community, and Volunteers’ Week is the perfect opportunity to thank them.
Stephen Metcalfe said: “Volunteers are part of the fabric of British society. No matter how much people volunteer, whether it’s an hour every week or a few minutes a month, it all contributes to making our community a better place.
I have been privileged to meet so many incredible volunteers across Basildon and Thurrock since 2010 and I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made such a vital contribution.”
