The Wee County celebrates the 40th year of Volunteers’ Week in 2024! 

Now in its fortieth year, Volunteer Scotland and its national counterparts across the United Kingdom collectively agreed to rebrand the campaign and change the date to the first full week in June each year.  This means that Volunteers’ Week will run from 3rd – 9th June 2024 this year.  Another change is that the weekend of Volunteers’ Week, or 7th-9th June this year, will also be the Big Help Out’s days to encourage volunteering across the country.  Last year, roughly 7.2 million people across the country took part directly in the Big Help Out, and a further 103 million reached on social media alone (Big Help Out, 2024).

On Tuesday 4th of June, an event in Alloa town centre called the Big Plant Out Day will encourage people and volunteers from across the Wee County to get involved in sprucing up the potted planters.  Groups like Alloa in Bloom, The Conservation Volunteers, and Clackmannanshire Council, among others are joining forces at 10am to help make Alloa look its very best.

On Thursday, Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface (CTSI) has been working hard in organising its much-anticipated annual Awards Ceremony scheduled for during the week. This year, the invite-only event will be held in Tillicoultry’s Devonvale Hall on the 6th of June. With over 140 people scheduled to attend, it will be one of the biggest ceremonies yet in the Wee County!

Throughout Volunteers’ Week, CTSI’s social media will highlight the voices of local organisations and what volunteerism means to them. If you want to get involved yourself, for more information, simply email CTSI’s Digital Communications Assistant, Amy at: amy.mcintosh@ctsi.org.uk

In August, Alloa First and CTSI are collaborating on the Family Carnival & Charity Fayre, as part of CTSI’s contribution to the Big Help Out. With a range of different fun activities and entertainment on offer to tie in with an exciting Carnival theme, there will also be various charities occupying stalls on Alloa’s High Street showcasing their services and volunteering opportunities. Be sure to come along and check them out!

In summary, Volunteers’ Week is a time for communities across the country to come together and show their appreciation for volunteers who go above and beyond in the service of others. They represent the best of the Wee County and are the glue that keeps us all together. So if you are a volunteer, then we hope you have a great Volunteers’ Week, and from us at Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface- THANK YOU!

If you have any questions about Volunteers’ Week, please email CTSI’s Volunteer Development Officer, Chris at: christopher.white@ctsi.org.uk
