Come and Celebrate National

Volunteers' Week with us!

PAVS National Volunteers Week Event 2016

National Volunteers' Week is a nationwide celebration of volunteers and volunteering which takes place, this year, from 1st – 12th June.

Volunteers' Week plays a huge part in raising the profile of the millions of volunteers who regularly contribute to the community, while inspiring others to get involved too.

PAVS Volunteering Pembrokeshire held their National Volunteers Week celebration event on June 9th 2016 at Letterston Memorial Hall to recognise and give thanks to volunteers giving their time and commitment within their communities in Pembrokeshire.

Over 150 people attended this very vibrant event with over 20 voluntary organisations promoting various volunteering opportunities attracting many new volunteers.

The PAVS Pembrokeshire Volunteering Awards also took place at the event in the afternoon, giving recognition in 6 categories – Trustee, Individual Over 25, Individual Under 25, Group Over 25, Mike Beckett Award* - Group Under 25. and the Mary Sigley Award where volunteering has changed the life of a person.  


*The Group Under 25 award was renamed this year; it is now the Mike Beckett Group Under 25 Award in honour of our late colleague Mike Beckett, who tragically passed away very suddenly last year.
