International Volunteer Day

December 2, 2018 8:12 AM

International Volunteer Day logo 2018International Volunteer Day is marked on the 5th December each year to celebrate the hard work of volunteers.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community and take on many important roles, be that looking after parks and paths or volunteering in local charity shops or community groups. Without volunteers, these things would not be able to take place and life would be trickier in our local communities.

This year, there is a special focus on local community volunteers across the world through the title of "Volunteers build Resilient Communities". This focus aims to celebrate those who have remained resilient in the face of natural disasters, economic stresses and political shocks, freak events that lead to extremely challenging situations.

The Liberal Democrats would like to thank all of our volunteers for your hard work and commitment. We are a grassroots volunteer organisation, and we couldn't function without the volunteers who help us out. You help us to run as a party and fight for our values both locally and nationwide. Thanks also to to all volunteers who help to make the world a better and safer place.

If you're a volunteer then thank you. If you aren't yet why not learn something new and get stuck in with one of the many brilliant community groups across the North West.

You can follow the events from the day through the hashtags #IVD2018 #ResilientCommunities
