Suffolk's bid to boost volunteering!

Posted by on 20 September 2019

New campaign urges county to  ‘GET INSPIRED, GET INVOLVED, GET VOLUNTEERING’ 

A new county-wide campaign to encourage volunteering is being launched by a collective of Suffolk’s charities and voluntary organisations. 

The first Suffolk Action Week will take place between Monday 30th September and Sunday 6th October, with events and fairs being held throughout the region. 

The eight library-based fairs will take place between 10.30 and 2pm. These will be on Monday at Ipswich; Tuesday at Woodbridge and Halesworth; Wednesday at Lowestoft, Felixstowe and Eye (until 1pm); Thursday in Haverhill and Friday in Newmarket. 

Latest national research suggests 22% of the population take part in volunteering at least once a month, and organisers of Suffolk Action Week have aspirations of making this county a shining example to the rest of the UK of a community committed to giving their time to causes. You can volunteer from 1 - 25 hours a week and there are voluntary positions for 12 - 80 years old!
