Happy National Volunteering Week!

A special thanks is due to all the Laois volunteers for their invaluable contribution during this very difficult year.

Happy National Volunteering Week everybody.

This year more than ever, we need to celebrate volunteers and thank them for their invaluable contribution to our communities.
Volunteers across Ireland gave so much during #COVID19 making sure no-one in the community was left behind.
