Harpenden Town Council is very proud to support “Volunteer for Harpenden” which does such an excellent job promoting volunteering in the Town. I see examples every day of the admirable work volunteers put into their community and cannot praise it enough. As a member of The Harpenden Trust’s Care Fund Committee and a Director of Harpenden Connect I know from my own experience how essential volunteers are to the successful running of so many local organisations. The wonderful work of our volunteers makes a major contribution to the life of this Town as a great place to live in and enjoy.
Volunteer for Harpenden plays a pivotal role in bringing skills energy and commitment together and making a real difference to the lives of our residents and our voluntary organisations and clubs.
