Volunteers registered with the centre contributed an incredible 22,174 hours to their community in 2012.

Applying the average industrial wage, this voluntary effort has an equivalent value of over €489,159.

'It is heartening to see Wicklow residents remain as committed as ever to the local community,' said Manager of Wicklow Volunteer Centre Leah Kinsella.

She said that January is often a busy time at the centre.

'Volunteering is a wonderful New Year's resolution,' said Leah. 'It can be a great way of trying out something new, getting active and meeting new people.'
