Highlights from Volunteers' Week

12 June 2020

Thank you to everyone that helped up celebrate Scotland's volunteers and volunteering this #VolunteersWeekScot.

This Volunteers’ Week focused on thanks, gratitude and recognition. We were overwhelmed by the amount of creative thank yous shared through our website and on social media. Thank you for getting involved, getting creative and recognising Scotland's volunteers - past, present and future. 

Across the 7 days, the #VolunteersWeekScot hashtag was used on Twitter by more than two thousand users, reaching 7 million people through more than 21 million timeline deliveries. 400+ posts were shared on Facebook and 200+ on Instagram.

Almost 9 thousand volunteer subscribers were thanked and more than 250 creative thank yous were shared on our website, these included videos, poems, songs, drawings and more.
