Barnet Volunteers’ Week – Our Time To Say Thanks

1st June 2020

National Volunteers’ Week is a chance for organisations across the country to recognise the contribution of their volunteers. This Volunteers’  Week Volunteering Barnet is saying  Thank  You  to all the volunteers who have stepped up to support the Barnet community response to COVID-19, as well as the many dedicated volunteers who  have contributed many hours of volunteering to local charities and organisations over the years who  would love to be helping at the moment but aren’t able to  do so  because of  social distancing guidance.  We will be sharing stories about the fantastic Barnet volunteers throughout the week on our social media pages on Twitter @BarnetVolunteers or Facebook /volbarnet and use the hashtags #TimeToSayThanks and #BarnetTogether.

The Volunteering Barnet team want to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers supporting the most  vulnerable  members of their  communities: from  communities and faith groups coming together  and communities setting up neighbourhood volunteer initiatives, neighbours checking in on each other  and children transforming  their windows into  beautiful artworks to brighten up the commute of a key worker.   You are all making  a huge difference!  And, If you are one of the 600+ people who  signed up to  volunteer to support the Barnet COVID-19 response, Thank you!  If you would like to volunteer or have an opportunity you want to recruit volunteers for, you can find out more about the Barnet Community Response here.

If you have been unable to go out and volunteer at this moment,  there are still lots of  things you can do. Throughout the week we will be sharing ideas of how to volunteer from home on our social media pages. Simply calling a friend or relative who may be feeling isolated goes a long way and remember that by simply staying at home you are  also  doing your bit to keep others safe.

Thank you, from everyone at Volunteering Barnet and Barnet Together.
