Putting the spotlight on volunteers
YEAR Of The Volunteer is a key new initiative for the Tees Pride campaign in 2009.
We’re looking to highlight the great work under way in the voluntary sector, throw the spotlight on local charity champions and encourage more people to put up their hand and pledge to help out.
From voluntary workers to fundraising charity champs, we want to put them all well and truly in the spotlight during the next 12 months.
By going online at www.gazettelive.co.uk/teespride people can tell us all about their volunteering activities.
If you have special fundraising events taking place, we want to hear about them.
More than ever commerce and community are working together.
So we want to hear from companies who are doing great work for others.
Are your staff involved in fundraising or charity work?
Does your firm put something back into the local community?
We want to hear from you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or log on to www.gazettelive.co.uk/teespride
