National Volunteering Week 2023!

National Volunteering Week is a weeklong celebration of volunteering that will take place from Monday 15 May – Sunday 21 May 2023. Each year across Ireland, National Volunteering Week includes a range of events, stories and videos that showcase all that is great about volunteering.

Volunteering is a voluntary commitment that can be done for any reason, and it is free of financial gain. It involves doing something for the common good, because you care, because you want to.

Without the help of our volunteers, BCIL would not be able to provide the services that it does. We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our volunteers, past and present, for all of your efforts and commitment. We hope that you will know how much we appreciate your help and commitment, not just this week, but all year round.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

BCIL‘s volunteers have displayed extraordinary compassion for those in need. We would like to extend our gratitude for showing such kindness and helping the organization achieve its objectives.
