National Volunteer Week in Mayo a great success!!

Following five successful years of Volunteer Ireland’s National Day of Volunteering, 2012 saw Ireland’s first annual National Volunteering Week take place from Monday 14th May to Sunday 20th May.


A number of organisations around Mayo registered projects with Mayo Volunteer Centre and have hosted events as part of the celebrations. There has been decorating and painting in Claremorris Community Radio, litter pick-ups with the Curious Minds Pre-school with Le Cheile Family Resource Centre Castlebar, fishing lessons to Ballina Over 55’s Club with the Inland Fisheries Ireland-Ballina Branch and a photography competition for National School children in Ballina that are displayed in the Arts Centre for the coming week.


Mayo Volunteer Centre would like to thank all the many volunteers that have participated in projects this week. Well done for getting involved!
