Volunteers’ Week Competition

26 April 2017

Volunteers’ Week 2017 – You make the Difference!


Are you a volunteer with a story to tell?  Have you made a difference?

Why not take part in our Volunteers’ Week Competition?

Volunteer Essex are inviting Essex volunteers countywide to tell their volunteering story to our website visitors in approximately 500 words.  Tell us how you came to volunteer, how it has affected you and others, what you enjoy about it or tell us about a particular experience.  The content is up to you and you could help to inspire others by telling your story in your own words!  (Full names will not be printed on the website.)

There will be three winners whose entries will be featured on the Volunteer Essex website during Volunteers’ Week 2017 (1st to 7th June).  In addition the author of each winning story will receive a Marks and Spencer’s Gift Card to the value of £20.

To enter the competition complete the Competition Entry Form and return it with at least one photograph (preferably as a jpg. and in landscape format) to volunteering@maldoncvs.org.uk or to your local Volunteer Centre.  (Please ensure you have permission from anyone else who appears in the photo.)

If you prefer you can print the form, complete it by hand and return it to your local Volunteer Centre.

You can find details of your local Volunteer Centre Here.

The deadline for entries is Wednesday 24th May 2017.
