This week marks the 30th Anniversary of  Volunteers’ Week. Running between 1 – 7 June 2014, volunteers’ week is a celebration of the wonderful contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK every single day.

As well as being vital to some organisations to be able to continue to provide services to people who need help, volunteering can also have fantastic benefits to those who take the time to help out.

Take a look at the slide show below to see the many different ways that volunteering could help you.
