Let’s Celebrate Oxford Volunteers

The social media campaign to recognise and raise awareness of volunteering and volunteers took off Monday on International Volunteer Day.

There was an excellent response to the survey about the monetary value of volunteering to Oxford:

More than 55,000 Oxford residents are volunteers and give up their time to help transform the lives of others – contributing about £27.6m to the city every year

Thank you to all of you who are taking part and making this such a massive success.

Capitalise on the campaign: What skills is your group looking for? Enquiries are coming in from people interested in a range of volunteer activities.  Please let OCVA know, contacting Emily on 01865 251946, about any key volunteer roles that you are trying to fill so she has a chance of matching a volunteer.

Here are all the links to support the campaign:
