Volunteers Make an Enormous Contribution to Irish society

As we come to the end of Foróige's Volunteer Appreciation Week, I am struck by the generosity and selflessness of so many Foróige volunteers - be they leaders in clubs, Mentors in Big Brothers Big Sisters, judges in NFTE, project volunteers or board members. We know that in recent times this generosity has resulted in Foróige volunteers giving close to 400,000 hours of time each year.
