Believe it or not 22 million people volunteer in their local communities nationally which is quite amazing when you think about it. Volunteers Week (1st – 7th June) is fast approaching and is a great opportunity for organisations, such as ours who work with volunteers, to celebrate and reward their current volunteers as well as an ideal time to recruit new ones. At Volunteer Link we embrace this opportunity and will be taking our volunteers out for a celebratory Volunteers Week meal.
We are also holding 3 Volunteer Recruitment stalls at venues around the borough:-
1st June – at Northolt Leisure Centre, see here, 6th June at Acton Leisure Centre, see here and 8th June at central library, see here. Northolt and Acton are areas where we have less volunteers so we hope to recruit more from the local community. The stall in central Ealing will be in the library and is in conjunction with Ealing Volunteer Centre and other local voluntary organisations, so it should draw people in. We will be there at 10 am to 4 pm each day. If you are interested in finding out more about volunteering with us, therefore, this is the perfect opportunity to meet us for an informal chat with no obligation. Or please drop in just to say ‘hello’, we would be delighted to see you.
Our next Volunteers Training is being held on 27th June at North Hanwell Baptist Church where we have the capacity for a large training group. If you would like to support an isolated, vulnerable person in your local community, therefore, there is no better time to sign up with us. Please email Bridget at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring on 020-8434-3635. We hope to hear from you soon.
