Stephen Metcalfe MP Celebrates Local Volunteers

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.”
