Here in the UK this year our week has been extended to incorporate the Queens 90th birthday. So our Volunteers "week" is 1st to the 12th June ending with our big Street party celebrating her majesties big day. I know our home will be decked in red white and blue that weekend I can assure you!

Wow Michelle, an extra 5 days, how wonderful! Are you hosting your own street party? I'd love to hear how this works.

In Australia go to the following for resources and downloads to help celebrate National Volunteers week from 9 to 15 May for 2016. This is the website: http://www.volunteeringaustralia.org/nvw/ As the theme is "Give happy Live happy" we are going to decorate the dining room in bright colours and balloons, bunting and have a circus theme with a staff member (probably me) dress up in our clown costume or our facility's mascot costume. We have invited the volunteers and I have asked some of the elders to serve on the volunteers during the shared morning tea. We will use the certificates of appreciation that you can download and we used the invitation download too. There are smiley props to download, laminate and use during the event too.
