A strong Voice For Makerfield: October 2017
This week I joined forces with pop mogul, Pete Waterman, to encourage people shirt symbol throughout Makerfield to present their time to profit the local community as a part of CSV Make a Difference Day, the largest single day of volunteering on Saturday 30 October 2010.
I am passionate concerning the world of volunteering having managed a group of over 30 volunteers in my previous job function earlier than turning into Makerfield’s MP.
As a supporter of CSV Make a Distinction Day, I am encouraging the residents of my constituency to do one thing to profit our community! Irrespective of how big or small – make a cup of tea for a lonely neighbour, dig out those weeds and plant flowers in the neighborhood park, and even renovate the local homeless shelter. I’ve seen the constructive modifications a little volunteering will help impression the local community.
That is the fifteenth Make a Difference Day organised by CSV, the UK’s main volunteering charity. Greater than half a million folks have taken half so far.
This 12 months’s CSV Make a Distinction Day, the UK’s biggest single day of volunteering, is on Saturday 30th October with occasions going down from 23rd October to 7th November. Annually tens of hundreds of people turn their minds to learn others locally; they bake cakes for nursing houses, create allotments in faculties, tidy isolated neighbours’ gardens, put on theatrical performances and go to patients in hospitals – to provide a couple of examples.

There’s a particular focus on encouraging families, as well as people and teams to volunteer this year. New impartial analysis commissioned by CSV, reveals that families need to spend extra time together. As much as half of Britons (forty eight%) say they would like to spend extra time collectively and volunteering to help others is a method to do that.
