Make a Difference Day, which takes place on the fourth Saturday of October this year Saturday 24th October 2020, is an annual celebration of the contribution by volunteers in our society and encourages others to try volunteering.
The Mayor of Epsom and Ewell, Councillor Humphrey Reynolds said: “I feel it is important to use today as an opportunity to raise the awareness of our local voluntary community and to thank them.
“This year has seen borough residents of all ages and backgrounds helping out in a myriad of ways during the pandemic. I want to thank each and every one of you.”
“While the general public may only see volunteering when it is in the headlines, I know that there are many performing vital roles within our community, behind the scenes, year in and year out.”
“Individuals and groups contribute to our community on many different levels, including in youth, culture, sport, care and the environment.”
“Each of us is regularly presented with opportunities to make a difference. Most of the time, for quite understandable reasons, we let those opportunities pass us by. Don’t assume that you have nothing to give or that people won’t want what you have to offer. You don’t need to make a huge gesture to make a difference.”
“If you would like to volunteer and would like to find out what’s available locally contact Central Surrey Voluntary Action.”
“One day of volunteering can make all the difference”.
