Archbishop to Host Volunteering Seminar
Tuesday 16th November 2004The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, is to host a seminar at Lambeth Palace on 'Volunteering, charity and the promotion of a participatory society', which will be attended by HRH the Prince of Wales.
The seminar will take place on Monday 22nd November and will bring those involved in the Prince of Wales' charitable and voluntary interests together with Church of England bishops who have a particular interest in this field.
Dr Williams said "I am delighted to be able to hold this event here and to have the valuable perspective of the Prince of Wales. His extensive involvement in the charitable sector gives him a unique perspective on some of the issues that will be raised. This, together with the Church of England's own record in building and sustaining voluntary commitment to our society, will make for a fascinating and worthwhile engagement."
