National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. This year it was held from Monday 18 May to Sunday 24 May, with the theme, “Changing Communities. Changing Lives”. Although we were not able to gather in person like we would normally do, we celebrated through social media and other digital channels. Here is what we got up to!
