Colin Neighbourhood Partnership (CNP) celebrated Volunteers Week in style by hosting a barbeque for volunteers in the Colin area to thank them for their hard work and dedication.
The event was held at Colin Allotments and Healthy Living Centre and was attended by over 150 volunteers who ‘took time out’ to enjoy some music, food, and craic. Volunteers were also invited to share their experiences to highlight the variety of volunteering opportunities in Colin and the positive impact their work has had on the community.
Volunteers Week is a national campaign that celebrates the vital role that volunteers play in their communities. The theme for this year’s campaign is “Celebrate and Inspire”, and CNP’s BBQ was a great opportunity to highlight the difference that volunteers make in the Colin area.
Emily Brough, Volunteer Development Worker, CNP commented “Volunteers are an invaluable resource to the Colin area and without their time and dedication many of the activities that happen throughout the area would simply not be possible.”
“It is a pleasure for my colleagues and I at CNP to support and recognise the work and commitment of volunteers in the Colin community. The annual BBQ is a great opportunity to showcase the high number of committed and passionate individuals who give their time and effort to care for others.”
CNP would like to thank all of the volunteers who attended the BBQ and all of the volunteers who work tirelessly to make the Colin area a better place. We would also like to thank our funders Belfast City Council and the Department for Communities.
