Did you know that Forever Hounds Trust is largely made up of volunteers? With nearly 400 pairs of helping hands operating across the country, we knew that there was much to shout about during Volunteers’ Week 2016!
The annual event, which took place this year between 1-12th June (its ending co-inciding with the Patron’s Lunch), is an initiative run by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), in partnership with Volunteer Development Scotland, Volunteer Now (Northern Ireland) and Wales Council for Voluntary Action, to encourage recognition of the hard work and commitment of volunteers all over the UK.
Forever Hounds Trust marked the week in a number of ways, in a tour of our regional teams, thanking them and working alongside them to tell potential volunteers about what great teams they can become a part of! A photo album following our travels is available on our Facebook page here.
Anna Claxton, Volunteer Co-ordinator, said: ‘Without the level of dedication and commitment from our volunteers, Forever Hounds Trust simply wouldn’t function to the high standard we are so proud of. From hands-on animal care to administrative duties and fostering to fundraising, every minute of our volunteers’ time is so precious and we can’t thank them enough for making such a big difference as part of the team and, ultimately, to the animals”.
