ELLESMERE Port and Neston Volunteer Centre celebrated Volunteers Week with an event to publicly thank those who give up their time to help others.
Borough MP Andrew Miller presented certificates to people who assist a wide range of voluntary organisations across all age ranges, from children's organisations to transport schemes.
During the Civic Hall event Mr Miller said: 'I am amazed at the wealth of opportunities available in Ellesmere Port. Without volunteers many organisations would simply not exist.'
The event was organised by Val Connelly, of Ellesmere Port and Neston Association of Voluntary and Community Organisations (EPNAVCO), who said: 'If you have any free time and would like to know more about volunteering please contact me on 0151 356 7358.'
