It’s just two weeks until Volunteers’ Week 2017, the annual event from 1-7 June to celebrate the difference volunteers make to every community across the country! 
There are over 250 events on the national Volunteers Week map so far- everything from barbecues to theatre productions- get your event on this map now! 
There is also a useful resource pack, put together by NCVO, which is available on the Volunteers’ Week website. This includes a range of resources, ideas and tips for making the most of Volunteers’ Week this year and to help you run your own Big Celebration.
Volunteers Week organisers are encouraging groups to tweet what they are doing and share their photos during volunteers’ Week using the hashtag #volunteersweek – Voscur are keen to help promote all of the amazing things achieved by volunteers in Bristol so do tag us (@voscur) in your tweets as well and we will share them with our network. 
Do remember to post any events you are holding on the national Volunteers’ Week map and encourage any organisations you work with to do so. Not only does this help us all celebrate what is happening nationally, the map also helps to let Press and Journalists know about these events and therefore raises the profile of volunteering and the work you are all doing. 
If you have any questions, just contact the Volunteers’ Week team: volunteersweek@ncvo.org.uk
