Help us celebrate Volunteers’ Week by participating in our Volunteers’ Garden Party in Lister Park, as part of the People Can Make a Difference campaign. The event takes place on Saturday 4th June, 9.15am – 1.00pm. Local charities and groups are invited to join in the celebrations by taking a covered stall to promote their volunteering opportunities. The event has been timed to coincide with the Park Run so we hope there will be plenty of people around, you may wish to entice the runners to stalls with cakes and Haribo, you can collect donations for these items. This is a charity event and we are asking for a donation of £20 towards the costs of the stalls. You must be a not for profit organisation registered with the volunteer centre, registration is free. Make your booking here, the deadline for bookings is the 26th May.
