It’s Volunteer’s Week – celebrating the work of volunteers across the UK and the valuable contributions they make.
As part of the week’s activities, we’ll be shining a spotlight on some of our events volunteers and members of Renfrewshire’s Youth Events Panel – and the amazing work they have been doing at local events, projects and more.
Meet Beth Paton, who is a member of Renfrewshire’s Youth Events Panel and a young volunteer.
“I first found out about the youth events panel while they were working on the Halloween festival and thought it looked fun. It was a new experience that I thought I’d try out.
The great aspects of volunteering are having a positive aspect on the community, meeting lots of new people and making great friends, gaining new skills and experiences. Also, getting to take part in all the great festivals and events.
It’s a really great opportunity and experience that allows you to try new things and meet new people. It also gives you a chance to impact your community and make decisions that could influence events near you.”
