Our volunteers tell us they love the opportunity to get together. That was exactly what our second national Volunteer Conference and Awards Ceremony, which took place last month, was all about.
Volunteers from across the UK travelled to the Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire for the event. They built on their existing skills and knowledge, learned from each other, and shared their stories and experiences.
During the evening, everyone donned their glad rags for the prestigious Volunteer Awards Ceremony. It’s our way of thanking all our volunteers for the difference they make and recognising the contributions of some exceptional individuals and teams.
Joelle Leader, Macmillan’s Volunteering Director, said: 'I'm constantly amazed by the achievements of our volunteers. They are the driving force in helping us make sure no one faces cancer alone.’
Our volunteer conference is a great opportunity to meet other volunteers, learn from one another and share stories.
Our organisation was started by a volunteer over one hundred years ago, and today they’re more important to us than ever. That’s why we celebrate their dedication with the Macmillan Volunteer Awards.
Whether it's minutes or months, hours or days, the time you give really does matter.
