Celebrating volunteers and the wonderful work they do supporting some of Bristol’s great causes
Seven voluntary sector organisations will celebrate the great work done by their volunteers at a special event in Bristol’s Brunswick Square tomorrow, Friday 3 June at 12.30pm.
Second Step is holding the two-hour event with Bristol Drugs Project, Bristol Women’s Voice, Oxfam, Big Issue, Golden Key and DHI (Developing Health and Independence), and NACOA (National Association for the Children of Alcoholics) as part of national Volunteer Week which runs from 1 – 12 June.
In the last 12 months Second Step volunteers have supported more than 873 people who use our mental health services. In total, 126 Second Step volunteers have donated an amazing 5287 hours of their time.
Aileen Edwards, Chief Executive of Second Step, said: “Our volunteer team has grown in numbers and also in the impact it has made for the people who use our services and also by complementing our staff team. The time they give is invaluable and it is fantastic that we are holding this event to say thank you.”
