This year National Volunteer week (19-25 June) coincided with Matariki so we wanted to celebrate our 🌟Volunteer Stars🌟 not just at our awards ceremony on Monday but all week long in our office Matariki display! What an amazing bunch of people, doing some incredible things out in the community. This is their time to shine!
On 20 June 2022, we held our annual Volunteer Recognition Awards at the Christchurch Civic Offices. As usual this was a wonderful event, celebrating the volunteer stars of our community! What an honour to join together with such amazing Cantabrians, to give them their moment of deserved recognition!
On 2nd June 2022, our Outreach Manager, Glenda, enjoyed the first social networking get together post-covid with other local not for profits in our community. What a great opportunity to share experiences and support each other as we navigate the ever-changing community sector together.
On 1st June 2022, the VolCan team met up with the lovely team from Volunteering Mid & South Canterbury in Ashburton, to talk volunteering, collaboration and eat cake! 🎂 Great conversation, a zoom check-in with Volunteering New Zealand's Chief Executive, and, yes, a very fine cake!
On 24th May 2022, Lizzie caught a stunning day out in Darfield for one of her Selwyn Library Drop-in Sessions!
