Micro-volunteering Day

Friday 15th April 2022 marks Micro-Volunteering Day internationally, it is a chance for volunteers to come together in a synchronised effort to demonstrate the empowering concept of micro-volunteering. Micro-volunteering means ‘bite sized, on demand, no commitment actions that benefit a worthy cause’. For more information about micro-volunteering see inside this month’s blast or get in touch.
