People and organisations who help others across West Norfolk have won praise from local MP James Wild.
He visited a Volunteering Marketplace at Lynnsport organised by Community Action Norfolk and encouraged more people to get involved.
Voluntary organisations that James spoke with included: The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House; The Magpie Centre; YMCA, SOS Bus; West Norfolk Befriending; Citizens Advice, Norfolk; West Norfolk Transport Project; Norfolk’s Cancer Charity, Big C; Stroke Association, Hunstanton; Norfolk Good Neighbours; Motor Neurone Disease Association; Voluntary Norfolk.
One of the organisations he spoke to was the YMCA, SOS bus whose volunteers explained that their work in the community sees it interacting with hundreds of people per week in Lynn.
Mr Wild said: “There are so many brilliant voluntary organisations making a difference to the lives of people across North West Norfolk. This was an important showcase for the opportunities there are for more people to step up and help in their local community. Volunteering is not only rewarding, but it can help with career progression and I encourage people to look at how they can get involved.”
