As part of Volunteers’ Week 2017, Cumbria CVS is holding a Volunteering Fair where people interested in volunteering can find out more about the opportunities available. This fair provides a fantastic opportunity to meet and talk to representatives from over 14 local organisations who are looking to recruit new volunteers. They will be on hand for you to talk to informally and discuss volunteering. They represent a range of opportunities including areas such as care, advice work, older people, homeless, ex-offenders, gardening, mental health, fundraising, medical loan, retail, administration, children, carers, disability, IT, driving, befriending and youth, etc. Organisations attending include: Age UK South Lakeland, Leonard Cheshire Disability, Quaker Tapestry Ltd, Fairoak Housing Association, Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, British Red Cross, South Lakes Foyer, Depaul UK, South Lakeland Mind, Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service, Prison Advice Care Trust, Brewery Arts Centre and Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
The event is anyone who would like to find out more about local volunteering opportunities – please feel free to drop in at any time – you are very welcome.
