|Early (and rainy!) start this morning - on my way to volunteer at Baker Street station!|

Afterwards, I tweeted about this, and got a really nice response from Hands On London, the charity running this scheme.
I am always looking for ways to show appreciation to those who volunteer for my organisation, CHW, and tweeting a quote like this is a really nice idea! Everyone at CHW is a volunteer, and I am so grateful for the time they give to support the children's projects. Volunteers are indeed priceless, like the quote says!
International Volunteer Day (IVD) is celebrated on 5 December each year. It can be a great opportunity to arrange or participate in voluntary event. If you are a volunteer manager or coordinator, IVD could also be used as an opportunity to highlight the work of the volunteers you work with and to thank them.
Here is an album on facebook from last year's IVD, showing some of CHW's volunteers in action!
