Justin Madders MP for Ellesmere Port & Neston gives thanks and praises the hard work of local volunteers as part of Volunteers’ Week. Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the contribution and dedication of millions of volunteers who give up their time in the service of others. Events are taking place across the UK from 1-12 June to mark Volunteers’ Week, which this year is running for an extra five days to coincide with the Queen’s Patron’s Lunch on 12 June.
Justin said, “Many local people give up their time and work hard to make the lives of others better. Volunteers make a huge difference to our communities, and our lives would be worse without them. It is great to see that doing good to help other people is alive and well in Ellesmere Port & Neston. Whether they are running sports clubs, providing services for those in need or spending time with people at risk of loneliness, volunteers are an inspiration for us all and it’s important we recognise them. Thank you!”
