This National Volunteers’ Week, the County Council is promoting the wide range of volunteering opportunities available across its services.
Hampshire County Council Leader, Councillor Roy Perry, said: “We have an amazing breadth of volunteering opportunities across Hampshire – whether at our countryside parks, county archives and libraries, out on the road as volunteer drivers, helping mentor our young people, or supporting the elderly.
“The dedication and work of our volunteers is invaluable in helping to make a positive difference in local communities across the county, and I would like to extend my personal thanks for the fantastic contribution they make.”
