Celebrating our community volunteers

Back to all news

Irish in Britain has celebrated the fantastic role volunteers play in our community throughout Volunteers Week with messages from our members all over Britain.

Irish in Britain would have held its third Annual Volunteers Awards ceremony on 4 June, restrictions due to Covid–19 led to it being postponed. So this year to mark Volunteers Week we asked our members to send in video messages.

We lead off with a message from Ambassador Adrian O’Neill who was due to address the ceremony.

Irish in Britain would like to thank all volunteers in communities everywhere who give their time, energy and skills to support others.

We celebrate your contribution, particularly at the moment when we all are working to make sure no one is left behind.
