Community Links Bromley is holding its annual celebration event to recognise volunteering across Bromley. Our fifth Volunteer Awards Ceremony will take place on Thursday 31st May 2012 and we are expecting the event to be even more popular than ever.
At last year’s event 30 awards were presented, including one for Jake, a PAT (Pets as Therapy) dog, volunteering for Harris Hospiscare. This year, in response to a large number of requests, we have added a category for ‘team of volunteers’.back to top
The Government has made it clear that it would like more people to volunteer. In particular, volunteering is seen as one route back to work for unemployed people.
