AS Volunteers’ Week approaches, Saffron Screen is paying tribute to its hundreds of volunteers.
Volunteers’ Week (June 1-7) is an annual campaign which celebrates the contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK.
Saffron Screen is marking the occasion by inviting its volunteers to bring a guest to a screening of their choice this weekend.
The cinema is supported by 15 part-time staff and over 100 volunteers, all of whom live locally. They hail from all corners of the community and work across a host of activities both front of house and behind the scenes.
Business manager Rebecca del Tufo said: “Volunteers’ Week is a fantastic opportunity for us to take stock of the huge amount of time and energy our volunteers commit to Saffron Screen. Without them, the cinema would not be able to operate and we would like to thank each and every one of them.”
