The contribution of volunteers is often unseen and unrecognised by many, visible only through the incredible impact of their volunteering.

However, the coronavirus pandemic has rightly raised the profile of volunteering and more people than ever are aware of the immense contribution being made every single day by the UK’s volunteers.

This Volunteers’ Week, K107fm will be thanking and celebrating their 30 plus volunteers, highlighting the lengths they have went to during the pandemic to ensure the station continues to broadcast across the Kirkcaldy area, 24 hours a day.
