Bev Place, Business Development Manager at RCT said “Volunteers truly are the backbone of Rochdale Connections Trust and we were keen to show them how much we value their willingness to give up their time to support and mentor local young people who face challenges and difficulties and also to assist in fundraising activities for us.

“As an organisation we have been fortunate to have some truly inspirational volunteers, who have been committed to making a difference to the lives of young people in need across Rochdale for over 20 years.”

“A huge thank you to everyone who has ever donated their time to supporting the work of the charity.

“Volunteers Week takes place every year between 1-7 June and RCT were keen to start off the week of celebrations with a bang.”
