To say thank you and show gratitude for the amazing volunteers in Stockport, Stockport Volunteer Hub are organising an Awards Ceremony: Stockport Rocks! in partnership with Stockport County Community Trust and Marketing Stockport.
Up to 300 volunteers will be invited to a knees up at Edgeley Park, with a two-course dinner and entertainment, with ten awards up for grabs.
Stockport has over 57,000 volunteers (taken from the borough’s 2021 State of the VCFSE Sector report) who give over 213,000 hours a week, valued at an incredible £105 million a year. These people give their time, for free, to help others live healthy and happy lives. Their work often goes unnoticed but plays a crucial role in helping people to continue with everyday life, whatever the challenges they may be facing.
To support the event, organisers are now calling on the borough’s business community to help celebrate those who give up their time to help others in Stockport.
Sponsorship is now open with a variety of options available to businesses who want to show their gratitude to Stockport’s amazing volunteer community. There are three sponsorship packages available with various company profiling opportunities, plus flexibility to tailor to your budget:
- Sponsor a Category
- Sponsor a Table
- Buy everyone a welcome drink
More information is available in the Sponsorship Package, downloadable here.
This is a lovely opportunity to say thank you to Stockport’s volunteers and help give them a celebration!
