Each year the nation celebrates the dedication and work of the many volunteers who give their time and valued experience to the many different sectors.
As part of this Nottinghamshire Healthcare Trust always arranges celebrations to take place during this week for the volunteers within our Trust.
Due to the current COVID 19 situation we are unable to plan the gatherings that we would normally do. It is also a difficult time for many areas and charities who are struggling at this in the wider community.
For this reason we have opted to change from “celebration” to “Thank” our volunteers. All this week via our social media streams we will have blogs, videos, pictures and virtual interactions with the team highlighting the fantastic roles volunteers play within our organisation. We have also produced a special newsletter which will be sent out to all our volunteers on Friday.

Today we will be hearing from Rampton Hospital and the IMH about the volunteering opportunities, you can be involved with there and also we will be presenting our Volunteer Service awards. At 2:00 pm join us on Twitter for a virtual chat about your volunteering role.
On Tuesday and Wednesday we will hear from some of our volunteers who have started in the past twelve months on brand new volunteering placements within CAMHS and our Environmental Teams.
On Thursday 4th June 4:00 pm we will also be holding a Virtual Afternoon Tea via Microsoft Teams, please call us on 0800 052 1415 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the invitation list.
Finally on Friday you will discover how we are going to challenge the Executive Team and ourselves in December with Volunteers Week (Mark II). The day will also give us an opportunity to reflect on how the landscape of volunteering has changed in the last few months and Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is planning for volunteering going forward.
