DTA Treasurer joins in the Big Help Out
By DTA | 9th May 2023 | Blog
The Big Help Out was created by some of Britain's best-known charities from the Scouts to the Royal Voluntary Service, Rotary to the National Trust and took place on the final day of the Coronation Weekend.
In tribute to His Majesty The King's public service, the Big Help Out encouraged people to try volunteering for themselves and join the work being undertaken to support their local areas. The aim of The Big Help Out was to use volunteering to bring communities together and create a lasting volunteering legacy from the Coronation weekend.
DTA Council member and Treasurer Tony Griffiths joined in the Big Help Out in his local community:
'Just back from a damp local community tidy up with a scout group. A considerable amount of community dedicated work was carried out by young members supported by the adult team members.
The drizzle today did not take away from the great efforts made by all those associated with the scouts and their communities.
No doubt many will have already posted pictures on Facebook to show their support to the idea of the benefits of volunteering which includes supporting DTA.
Remember, volunteering is not just for the BIG HELP OUT day it should go on and by such improve your own health.'
If you weren't able to join in the Big Help Out it's not too late to start volunteering.
Volunteering can make a real difference in your own life and the lives of those around you. There are loads of ways to get involved and plenty of organisations that can help you find a volunteering role that suits you.
