Hello and welcome,
In our post today I’d like to let you know about the Volunteer Fair and Volunteers Surgery that we have pencilled in for Volunteer’s Week.
What is Volunteers Week?
Well, Volunteers’ Week is an annual event which takes place at the start of June. It celebrates the contribution made by millions of volunteers across the UK.
This year it takes place from June 1st – 12th and as part of the event, Volunteer Centre Manchester is holding a Volunteer Surgery on Wednesday 8th June (1pm-4pm) at Macc offices to kick thing’s off!
The Volunteer Surgery is an informal drop-in session for anybody wanting to know more about volunteering or social action. It’s your opportunity to get a real insight in to the volunteering “world” and to find out what life as a volunteer is really like. At the surgery speak with active volunteers (surgeons,) hear their motivations, stories of volunteering and tips of advice. They are also happy to answer any volunteering questions you may have. On top of that, members of the Volunteer Centre Manchester team will also be on hand to provide information about volunteering opportunities and how you can get the ball rolling, so get yourself down to the session and make the most of it!
On Thursday 9th June (10am-2pm) we have our Volunteer Fair and this takes place in the Media Lounge at Manchester’s Central Library. The Fair is a great opportunity to talk to the local charities and community groups who are attending. All stallholders will be there to give information and answer questions about their organisations. We have a nice mix of organisations attending that work in a multitude of areas, including working with homeless people, foodbanks, working with young people, charity shops and much more, so there will be something for everyone!
The event is free for everyone to attend, so tell your friends and join us there.
For more information contact us at the Volunteer Centre on 0161 830 4770 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
See you soon, Barkery
