All volunteer help is valued and valuable – if I have left someone off, big apologies, and please tell me so I will add to this list.

The total of volunteer hours is 1338 🙂

If anyone wants to help quantify this into money – please do get in touch.  There’s some information here about the economic value of volunteers, although of course we know that the economy is a lot, lot wider than money!  See an July blog by Aidan Ward, Director, on economic community development
