PPM team celebrate Volunteers Week 

Our PPM team have been enjoying taking part in several volunteering projects in the local communities that we work within in Cumbria and Yorkshire to celebrate Volunteers Week.

Volunteers Week takes place 1st - 7th June every year. It is a chance to recognise the fantastic contribution volunteers make to our communities and say thank you.  Here at PPM, we also used it as an opportunity to get our PPM Volunteering Scheme back in full swing following many of the COVID restrictions being lifted.
