Volunteering week in 2016 runs to 12 days

This year’s Volunteers’ Week, a UK-wide celebration of volunteers and volunteering, is to run for an extra 5 days extending from 1st to 12th June.

The end of Volunteers’ Week will coincide with the Patron’s Lunch on 12th June, a celebration of the Queen’s birthday and her patronage of more than 600 charities in the UK and Commonwealth. Communities will be encouraged to participate by holding their own street party or event.
