Volunteers’ Week Thunderclap

18 May 2018

Join Volunteer Essex in recognising and

thanking the volunteers of Essex

Volunteers’ Week runs from 1st -7th June every year and is the national celebration of volunteering. Volunteers’ Week is a time to say ‘thank you!’ for the fantastic contribution volunteers make.

During the week, hundreds of events and celebrations take place across the country, saying thank you to volunteers and recognising their invaluable and diverse contribution to the UK.

In Essex thousand of volunteers give their time to the local community and we want to say Thank You.

On Friday 1st June we want to make some noise on Twitter. We are challenging local charities, organisations and people to help get us heard with a ThunderClap! 

What is Thunderclap?
Thunderclap is a tool that enables you to support us by pledging a tweet post at the same time that everyone else pledges one – to ensure maximum impact. When you pledge your tweet, it will be sent automatically from your account on 1st June to coincide with the start of Volunteers Week.

We are asking all supporters of the campaign to join in with our Thunderclap launch.
