Volunteers Week takes place 1-7 June every year and is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.

This is a week in which the UK celebrates volunteers and says thank you to them for the contribution that they make. The week also raises awareness about the benefits becoming a volunteer and the diverse volunteering roles that are available.

As well as helping others, volunteering has been shown to have a positive impact on the lives of those who volunteer by enhancing well-being, gaining valuable new skills and experiences, and boosting self-esteem.

During the past year, 3,564 individuals dedicated an amazing 18,468 hours of their time to volunteer in Medway greenspaces. This exceptional commitment has made a significant difference to local communities, residents, and, of course, our beloved greenspaces. We’d like to extend a huge thank you each and every one of you!!
