Kingdom YC/An Riocht GAA will hold a joint Volunteer Recognition event at Dunavil as part of the thirty-second annual Volunteer Week celebrations on Thursday 9th June at 7.30pm. Our organisations could not operate without volunteers, they are the local heroes who help us provide vital services to this community, their dedication and hard work deserves to be recognised in this way. Wendy Osborne CEO Volunteer Now, who attended the last such event at Dunavil, said ‘I am delighted that so many organisations are taking part in this year’s Volunteer Week celebrations. It marks the positive impact volunteers make on the lives of people and communities. Many organisations could not deliver the services they offer without volunteers. Likewise, the stories of volunteers, what they do and why they got involved provides inspiration for us all.’
