Platform Gateshead celebrates the contribution of Volunteers

Volunteers Week was marked at Platform Gateshead with a thank you to existing volunteers and an announcement of a new opportunity.

Faye Codling, Project Leader at Platform Gateshead said: “To celebrate Volunteers week, we posted on facebook a big thank you to all volunteers and highlighted the importance of the work volunteers within DISC do.

“We promoted volunteering, particularly within DISC and even added our post for a volunteer gardener for our Platform Planters Project.

“Our page reaches young people, parents the community and also our partner agencies and so we hope this reminded everyone of the valuable work volunteers do!”
