Derek hosts Big Thank You events for West Cornwall's volunteers

MP Derek Thomas is once again hosting a series of Big Thank You events - in St Ives, Helston and Penzance – at the end of this month to celebrate the work of West Cornwall’s army of volunteers.

“So many people do such fantastic work for our communities in West Cornwall and I think they should be thanked properly for their vital contribution,” said Mr Thomas.

“Last year, around 100 people came along and, as well as enjoying a cup of coffee or tea and a slice of cake, it gave everyone a chance to network and make contact with other like-minded people who devote spare time to helping others in the community.

“I hope we have a good turn-out again this year – I look forward to meeting as many volunteers as possible and hearing about their work.”

The three Big Thank You events take place on Saturday, 26th January at the Salvation Army, St Ives; on Friday, 1st February at the Bowling club, Helston and on Saturday, 2rd February at the Hope Church, Penzance.

If you are a volunteer and would like to attend, let Derek know, either by emailing or by calling 01736 363038.
