As reported in the Barnsley Gazette Barnsley Chronicle on 8th June, Stephanie has marked ‘Volunteers’ Week’ by paying tribute to the many local volunteers in Barnsley.
Volunteers’ Week is an annual event, this year running between 1-7 June, that celebrates the work done by volunteers with hundreds of events up and down the country.
Local MP Stephanie has taken the opportunity to thank the volunteers who make a difference throughout Barnsley.
“I’m fortunate that in my role as Barnsley East’s MP I’ve met some incredible volunteers who give their time and energy in so many different ways, but who each make a vital contribution to our community.
“Whether it’s keeping our unique local assets like our local museums and heritage sites up and running, to one-off events like the recent Tour de Yorkshire, or the long-term volunteers who spend their time helping others in our community who are less fortunate.
“Their positive impact on our community should not go unnoticed, and this is a great opportunity to say thank you to them all.”
