Its Volunteers' Week!

Volunteers' Week is an annual national celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering in their communities. NCYC wouldn't exist without volunteers, so we're joining in with the celebrations to shout out our thanks to the many local people who give their time, energy and passion to making our area such a strong community.


NCYC currently has over 80 active volunteers helping with all sorts of activities. Some people volunteer weekly, helping run activities like the Peer Bereavement Support Group or crochet club, or visiting an older person at home to share a cuppa and a chat. Some people volunteer monthly, helping organise and run Senior Matinees and Neston Flicks. And then there's a list of people who every once in a while, when we need it, will come back year after year to help out on amazing community events like the Big Lunch or the Liverpool to Chester Cycle Ride. Every volunteer is valued for the skills and experience they bring, and we simply couldn't do what we do without them. Plus it's fun to volunteer!


If you're considering volunteering, have a look at the list below. There are loads of ways to get involved.
