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 Shannon Baxter, who is a member of Renfrewshire’s Youth Events Panel.
“The reason I decided to join the Youth Events Panel and volunteer with the events team was because I wanted to put my opinions and ideas forward to help to plan events across Renfrewshire.
The positive aspects of being on the Youth Events Panel are the opportunities and the events that its allowed me to be involved in, creating for the Halloween festival and our stop-motion film ‘Behind the Mask’.
The one thing that I would say to encourage other young people to come along is, if you want to put your opinion and ideas forward on planning events in Renfrewshire, then the Youth Events Panel is the place for you.”
