This week – 1st – 7th June is volunteers week and the islands of Orkney have always provided many organisations with people willing to contribute as a volunteer.
In fact The Orkney News, a member of Voluntary Action Orkney (VAO), is completely run by volunteers and all its contributors are too. This is its strength as a community based online newspaper. The Orkney News is independent.
Voluntary Action Orkney co-ordinates the activities in the islands of organisations which are not for profit or which rely on volunteers. You can read its May newsletter here: VAO May 2018
The 2018 AGM for VAO will be on Monday 11th June at 7pm in Lifestyles Kirkwall.
