WDC supports volunteering to the tune of €10,000

The Western Development Commission has announced that it is to provide €10,000 investment to the European Volunteering Capital 2017.

The financial support will be used to highlight and promote the volunteering work that is being done in the West of Ireland, as demonstrated by the designation of Sligo as European Volunteering Capital for 2017.

Ciara Herity, Manager of Sligo Volunteer Centre, and Ian Brannigan, CEO of the WDC, made the announcement at Sligo Gaol, which is run entirely by volunteers.
