Volunteers' Week 2021 Summary

We in the CVSC Volunteering Team, would like to say a very big Thank You to all volunteers in the Conwy area. During an exceptionally difficult year, people from all walks of life have taken the time to volunteer and make a huge difference to people and their communities.

The contribution of volunteers is often unseen and unrecognised, visible only through the incredible impact of their volunteering. However, the coronavirus pandemic has rightly raised the profile of volunteering and more people than ever, are aware of the immense contribution being made every single day by our wonderful volunteers.

Abergele Community Action

Donna Jones, CVSC has been supporting Abergele Community Action as they have previously received a Youth Led Grant, and it was a privilege for Donna to present them with a CVSC Volunteers’ Week Certificate to acknowledge all of the considerable volunteering actions they have undertaken.
