Features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney and editor Emily Burt look at the formation of the Shaping the Future With Volunteering group.
The collaboration between 18 major charities plans to capitalise on the dramatic increase in volunteering that has happened during the Covid-19 pandemic.
They have pledged to work together in order to share knowledge and skills and make volunteering easier for people.
This week's coronavirus care package of charity good news stories includes:
- Speedo Mick is back, trekking through the Outer Hebrides in only a pair of swim trunks, to raise money for charity
- Two members of the clergy who superglued themselves to furniture in protest at the Church of England's continuing investment in ExxonMobil.
