To recognise their efforts and achievements, Cllr James Alexander Leader of the Council thanked over 100 volunteers for giving their time to contribute to the city.
People who volunteer in roles as diverse as snow wardens, school governors and health walk leaders came along to the event. There, they had a chance to record a short story about their volunteering experience, chat with each other, find out about other volunteering opportunities and were presented with certificates.
Councillor Linsay Cunningham-Cross, Cabinet Member for Health and Community Engagement, said:
“In York, we’re committed to building on our amazing bedrock of volunteers whose work contributes so much to the life of our communities."
“As a signatory to the York Charter for Volunteering, we support its principles in all our volunteering projects. We aim to provide safe and enjoyable opportunities to everyone to contribute to making where they live better and to be properly recognised for doing so.”
