Our Volunteer Events

In addition to the National Volunteer Week celebrations in May (with the AVA's and Volunteer Expos), we held a number of events, designed to fulfill our charitable objects, and find pathways from volunteering into employment. We also held community fundraisers and donated all the money to local organisations in need.
