2014 sees my fifth MP Volunteer Week in the Harrogate and Knaresborough constituency.
The idea of Volunteer Week is that I volunteer for different charities and organisations during the morning and afternoon over several days. Volunteer Week stemmed from my commitment to publicise the vital work done everyday within our community by the hard working volunteers of Harrogate and Knaresborough.
For the past four years, each Volunteer Week has been very successful, with the organisations and charities I visited highlighting the importance of volunteering within our community.
As a volunteer last year I was involved with some fantastic organisations. These included Henshaws College, Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Grosvenor House to name a few. This year I will again be working alongside some more inspiring volunteers throughout the week. I am looking forward to it – Volunteer Week is always a highlight of my year.
This year’s Volunteer Week will run from Tuesday 23 September till Friday 26 September.
Andrew Jones MP
