I've never heard of volunteer week. I have volunteered at a charity shop before, and I sometimes help out at my community centre, but thats about it.
I've never heard of it. I volunteer throughout the year but I'm not celebrating.
I haven't heard of it before but know that volunteering is an important part of keeping society going so it should be celebrated and promoted.

As a proud volunteer for the Red Cross and RSPCA I often get invited to a morning tea or lunch but to be honest I never attend. It's a bit like the cricket match each year that volunteers are invited to attend free, amazing, lovely gesture but no, I have never taken up the offer.
I too used to volunteer for an organisation which made a real point of taking part in volunteer week. It was nice to get together to with all the other volunteers within the organisation once a year, bit like a reunion really!
Economic constraints on organisations mean that volunteers are a vital part and key to the ongoing provision of services. Therefore I think it is nice to have this recognised by having a volunteers day. Doesn't meant that you have to wear a badge stating what you do, or attend the functions but I think it is important that the function of volunteers in our society is bought to the attention of the rest of the community.
Where I live they have an afternoon to thank the volunteers for their work all year
and we wouldn't get by without the help.I love my volunteer work I do various
things up to six I prefer doing a lot of different jobs than are more interesting than
only one and you feel great giving to people who need it
My daughter says I should start a chapter of Volunteers Anonymous. There was a celebration to mark my participation in two volunteer positions, but I was away volunteering. I did receive a certificate and badge later, plus a pen for something in particular, but I get such pleasure from volunteering that these were totally unnecessary. I like the fellowship of getting together in Volunteer Week. Next year I'll plan to be around.
