National Volunteer & Community Event 2021
Join volunteers, community members and staff from across the country at our annual celebration of volunteering
You are warmly invited to attend our National Volunteer and Community Event 2021. For the first time this year the event will be held virtually, using Zoom, so that we can be together in the safest possible way at the same time as we continue to play our part in the national fight against COVID-19.
As with previous years, the National Volunteer and Community Event 2021 will include the Marsh Volunteer of the Year Awards and a presentation ceremony for the chosen recipients for the following awards;
- Regional Volunteers of the Year
- Fundraising Volunteer of the Year
- Volunteer Team of the Year
- Digital Volunteer of the Year
- Achieving Impact through Innovation (New)
The evening will also present an opportunity for volunteers and community members from each of our three regions to take to the podium and share their experiences with you. This year’s presentations will focus on engaging with a new and emerging community in a changing neighbourhood, caring for a vested churchyard and delivering a community-led project.
This year we are pleased to welcome Wendy Coombey MBE, Community Partnership and Funding Officer at the Diocese of Hereford as our keynote speaker. Drawing on over 20 years’ experience, her address ‘Small Things - Big Difference’ will focus on some of the small interventions you can make to improve engagement with the wider community while working within available financial and human resources.
As we get closer to the event, a downloadable programme for the evening will be made available.
