30.6% of New Zealanders undertake some kind of formal volunteer work (i.e. for a group or an organisation). They give of their time and skills, experience and wisdom, sweat and labour in so many ways across ages and throughout all levels and endeavours.
Starting on Monday 3 November at 8.30pm VOLUNTEERING CANTERBURY airs a series of programmes it has produced called Celebrating Volunteering featuring highlights from speakers across the Canterbury voluntary sector. Support for the series came from the Chch City Council's Strengthening Communities fund.
If you are a volunteer - well done to you! You are needed so much and appreciated greatly.
