Thanks, volunteers

•As today is National Day of Volunteering, I would like to say a big thank you to the hundreds of volunteers across Ireland who give up so much of their time to be there for those in need of help and support. AWARE, and I am sure so many other charities and organisations, would not be in existence were it not for the dedication and commitment of volunteers.

So if you are a volunteer, I hope you take some time to do something nice for yourself today. You deserve it.
