Celebrating volunteers

Earlier this month, I attended the Ireland Involved Awards for volunteers in Dublin. Liam Burke was the winner of the International Development Volunteer category for his work with Concern.

Liam has been volunteering with us for over 20 years. His photographs have brought the Concern name to a global audience.

Talents and dedication

Liam shies away from personal publicity but without his exceptional talents and dedication, Concern and the people we work with would be far less visible.

Volunteering spirit

As an organisation, we are blessed with many volunteers who commit their time and talents across a range of activities. At this time of year, hundreds of volunteers are on the streets fundraising, adjudicating debates and supporting our work in other ways behind the scenes. I would like to thank them for their dedication and commitment. The spirit of volunteering is very much alive and well.
