Volunteers’ Week is an annual event which takes place at the start of June. It celebrates the contribution made by millions of volunteers across the UK. It’s run by NCVO in partnership with Volunteer Development Scotland, Volunteer Now(Northern Ireland) and Wales Council for Voluntary Action.
From showcasing the different volunteering roles on offer, taster sessions and team challenges with new partners, to volunteer recruitment events, awards ceremonies and launching new volunteering campaigns, events take place throughout the country.

Hope you enjoy reading my posts 🙂

Sandwell’s ever-popular Big Spring Clean campaign is back for 2017 – and local people and organisations are invited to get involved with litter picking, graffiti removal, planting and painting.
The campaign will launch with a community litter-picking event at Victoria Park, Smethwick, on Friday 3 March.

Veet For Men Hair Removal Cream gives smooth results in as little as four minutes. It is a quick and effective way to remove body hair leaving your skin feeling smoother for up to twice as long as shaving. And It’s easy rinse-off formula allows you to use in the shower
Give it a go, it works wonders but does smell at first when put it on then after wards you don’t notice it & It certainly removes hair as quick and easy as it says. I bought this because I wanted a quick and easy solution to removing unwanted body hair, and it works a dream.
It’s very easy to use and not very messy either .
Hiya all! Sorry I have been quite on my blog since last year a lot has happened I’ve joined Litter Watch which was sometime last year
What is Litter Watch you may be thinking well let me tell you. Litter Watch are an award winning community led charity commissioned by Sandwell Council and Serco Litter Watch work with both primary and secondary schools in Sandwell. The service is free of charge to local schools. They also have an Eco bus and this provides the centre piece of their education offering. So what does the Eco bus do you may be thinking??? well
The Eco Bus provides fun, interactive and informative environmental workshops and supports local people to learn about their environmental responsibilities including reducing, reusing and recycling waste.
We also go around the Sandwell area and do litter picking it’s great fun looking after the environment!
I’ve also been very busy at the Hospital Radio with presenting my show a lot things are changing very soon.
