Hillhouse - Volunteer Recognition and Celebration
Community Links (South Lanarkshire) are teaming up with thousands of charities and voluntary organisations across Scotland in a celebration of the vital contribution made by volunteers.
This year the theme is ‘Volunteering for All,’ which organisers hope will provide organisations with an opportunity to highlight that volunteering is for everyone.
From 1-7 June 2018, Volunteers’ Week Scotland will see a huge range of events take place in communities all over the country, from small awards ceremonies to large celebratory gatherings.
A ‘Volunteer Recognition and Celebration’ event have been arranged by Community Links in Hillhouse. The purpose of the event is to highlight the incredible hard work and dedication from local people who regularly give up their own time to help support local community projects. There is also an opportunity to find out more about the voluntary opportunities available in the area.
Join us on 7th June 2018 between 11am-3pm at Hillhouse Community Hub, Hillhouse & Earnock Community Centre, for a whole range of fun activities:
> African Dancing/ Music provided by Heart Of Africa UK
> World Café - a selection of delicious food from across the globe

The Hillhouse Community Group will also be hosting their AGM @ 2pm which will give everyone in Hillhouse, Udston and Burnbank an opportunity to find out about the group’s significant achievements over the last 12 months.
