International Volunteer Day

MEDIA ADVISORY
1 November 2006

International Volunteer Day

5 December 2006

This special day is marked around the world to celebrate and acknowledge the immense contribution made by volunteers across many sectors and activities including emergency services, health, welfare, education, sport and recreation, conservation, arts and culture, special interests and advocacy

This could provide a range of interesting story opportunities. These might include, for instance:
• A profile of a special volunteer or a voluntary organisation
• Exploring the motivations for volunteering
• Covering one of the many International Volunteer Day events occurring around the country
(they include Award presentations, exhibitions, etc)
• Interviewing key personalities from the voluntary sector

A useful first contact for a local lead would be the nearest Volunteer Centre, which can be contacted through phoning 0800 865 268. Each Centre will have a range of activities planned for the week or may know about events planned by community organisations in your district. Alternatively contact could be made with one of New Zealand’s 60,000 community and voluntary organisations.

A summary of activities planned for the week is being prepared and will be sent out within two weeks. Information about the plans for the week can also be obtained from Tim Burns, Executive Director, Volunteering New Zealand
