‘Thank You’ Fund for Volunteer-Run Groups in Kirklees
5th May 2021
Kirklees Volunteers’ Week 2021
National Volunteers’ Week from 1st to 7th June is an annual event to recognise the contribution that millions of people make across the UK through volunteering. It’s an opportunity for Third Sector Leaders (TSL) to recognise and say ‘thank you’ to volunteers in Kirklees.
This year the TSL Kirklees Volunteering team want to help groups in Kirklees say thank you to all their volunteers, particularly those who’ve done such incredible work over the last year, supporting people through the pandemic, either in person or from home.
Apply to the ‘Thank You’ Fund
If you are a volunteer-run project or group in Kirklees, then you can apply for a small fund to help you say ‘thank you’ to your volunteers. You will also receive a pack of free Volunteers’ Week thank you cards. A maximum grant of £100 is available for each organisation, but they will be able to fund more groups if people only apply for what they need.
It’s up to you how you spend the money, as long as it’s on an event or item to say thank you to your volunteers. For example, wellbeing goody bags, book vouchers, an afternoon tea delivery or tickets for an online event (please make sure any of your events are Covid-safe).
In return, they ask that you send them a photo and a quote from your volunteer group or an individual volunteer for TSL to share as part of their online Volunteers’ Week celebrations.
How to apply
The deadline for applications is Monday 24th May 2021
Please complete and return the Thank You Fund application form.
TSL aims to let you know within three working days if your application is successful. They will then ask you to invoice for the amount and payment will be made by bank transfer (template for an invoice can be provided if necessary).
