Volunteers’ Week takes place each year from 1-7 June and is an annual celebration of the contribution people make through volunteering.
It is a week dedicated to celebrating volunteering and the invaluable contribution that volunteers make to our society.
We’re celebrating the winner and runners up of the ‘London Met Community Volunteer of the Year’ Award
Volunteers for Manor Gardens
“Isabel started off as a stroke Club volunteer where she helped our stroke club to stay running well and even contributed ideas to make the experience better for our clients, she got along very well with the clients and made sure everyone enjoyed their time during the visit, then she also became a befriender where she makes regular calls to one of our isolated vulnerable clients, and she also helped me with admin tasks during the COVID situation when things got super busy for our organisation. She has contributed in many different ways to support us, she covered reception for us when our staff was ill during the situation which made a big impact and kept our service running smoothly.”

Matthew (Second Runner Up)
“Initially I began volunteering as a way to get to know people and network by getting involved. I am from another country and it's a good way to meet people while doing something positive. I would say my motivations have changed - I saw how important it was to participate through my own actions, a lot of my time is now spent with the goal of increasing student engagement.”
