Play

PHIL BOUGHTON of Volunteer Ireland speaks to Pat Meehan about the search for Volunteer of the Year for 2013. Phil urges listeners to nominate their own local heroes. The awards, now in their sixth year, are designed to highlight the great work done by good people all over Ireland.

Each person nominated receives a personalised “Thank You” card to mark their nomination. There will be a gala dinner at which the Awards will be presented. In 2013 over 10,000 volunteers were registered with volunteer.ie.

Phil talks about what it means to volunteer, what it entails, and the wide age range of Irish volunteers.
