International Volunteer Day (IVD) on 5th December was designated by the United Nations in 1985 as an international observance day to celebrate the power and potential of volunteerism.
Volunteering at Cerebral Palsy Sport can cover many different activities from being a sporting official to a trustee on the board, from educating to fundraising and we want volunteering for Cerebral Palsy Sport to be a rewarding and worthwhile experience and we are committed to supporting volunteers.
Volunteers contribute time and energy to support the charity achieve our vision and we could not do it without our volunteers.
Cerebral Palsy Sport are saying a #BigThankYou today to our volunteers, by sharing volunteering stories, feedback and information.
We also encourage participants and clubs to do this too – a nationwide celebration of the dedicated volunteers who make sport and recreation happen. Culminating at BBC Sports Personality of the Year on 16th December, the #BigThankYou is an opportunity for sports clubs projects and fitness groups to acknowledge their volunteers by sharing their stories, posting pictures on social media and thanking them through the hashtag #BigThankYou
