East Riding Festivals of Volunteering

HEY Smile Foundation are supporting a number of voluntary organisations to host an appreciation or celebration event for volunteers, around Volunteers’ Week 2024 (3rd - 9th June). 

In 2023, The Festival of Volunteering was a partnership project, led by Hull CVS and HEY Smile Foundation and hosted by Time2Volunteer, to empower voluntary organisations to celebrate volunteers.

In Hull, we held a full day event that involved many Time2Volunteer Partners and other voluntary organisations, as well as local businesses and corporate partners, who kindly offered their time and resources to put on an amazing afternoon for volunteers. 

East Riding events ranged from afternoon tea celebrations, networking and music events, a theatre show, to gift bags and a pop-up roadshow to recruit new volunteers!

Details of upcoming 2024 events will be updated here when confirmed!

To help you promote your East Riding volunteer event, and review it afterwards, we have provided a number of resources below.

We would be grateful if any publicity or marketing linked to your event could recognise Time2Volunteer and Smile. 

Volunteers’ Week 2024 is 3rd - 9th June and The Big Help Out is also happening again nationally this year, from the 7-9th June 2024. 

Organisations may wish to host joint events, to maximise resources, interest and involvement.

If you want to get involved and celebrate volunteers in your own way, the below websites have resources that you may find useful:
