Volunteers Week starts next month and it’s a chance to pay tribute to those who go above and beyond to make a difference in their communities.

We have 9 retro photos of these unsung heroes doing what they do best – from charity shop workers to food bank workers.

It’s only a small selection of the vast volunteer army in our area. But let’s take a moment to thank every volunteer who does their best.

See if you can spot someone you know in our volunteer archive collection.
