National Volunteers Week
The event at Wigan Library, which marked the end of National Volunteer Week, recognised the efforts of more than 660 volunteers who give over 30,000 hours of their free time every year.
Cllr Paul Kenny attended the event to speak to attendees. Paul said, “Volunteering brings huge benefits to those who volunteer – from learning new skills to making new friends - as well as making a real difference in our local communities. I would ask people to think about how they can become more active in their community, give something back, and support the Wigan Deal.”
