EAST Durham Trust is highlighting the impact and invaluable contribution that volunteers make to the local community during this Volunteer Week.
The Peterlee-based trust provides a wide range of volunteer led services within the community, including an emergency food parcel service, hot meal deliveries, debt and benefit advice, support for private tenants, telephone befriending, support for people living with cancer, activities during the school holidays, transport to work, job clubs, a one stop support and advice centre plus much more.
The services are primarily ran by a team of volunteers who give their time on a regular basis to help their local community.
Around 100 volunteers support the delivery of these essential projects that have become an integrated part of the support system for the local community. During National Volunteers Week the Trust will be highlighting the invaluable work that volunteers do and recognising the contribution which volunteering makes to the wider community as a whole.
