A festive evening dedicated to the Year of the Volunteer in Russia was held at the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London.
The Russian Volunteer Bureau (RVB) invited volunteers, those interested in becoming volunteers, and those who have never heard of volunteering, to join them for a festive evening and an awarding ceremony for the best Volunteers of the RVB.
At the celebration, the leaders and members of the volunteer bureau told about volunteering in the UK and Russia, and shared their experiences. The organisations assisted by the members of the RVB sent letters of gratitude. The most active volunteers were awarded with diplomas and gifts from the Russian Embassy and the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in the UK.
The evening included a festive concert with participation of professional musicians and talented compatriots.
