We would like to request you all to tweet about Volunteers Week on Wednesday, but please feel free to do this throughout the week. This may include activities you or your organisation are involved in. Please make sure you use #StocktonVolunteers in your tweets and let’s get it trending!
Thursday 6th – Catalyst Achievement Awards 2019

This evening is one of the highlights of the year for those involved in volunteering and personal commitment to helping others. Each year we receive hundreds of worthy nominations which reflect the high calibre of the work going on in our Borough by the VCSE. The event itself raises the profile of Catalyst in the region and our nominees often go on to be recognised regionally and nationally. You can find out more and join us on the evening here.
Friday 7th June
Look back at the week!
On this day we would invite you all to send in your stories, pictures and videos of the week so that we can share with the wider sector. We really want everyone to get together during this week and celebrate and recognise our volunteers for their invaluable contribution to our sector.
