Voluntary Action Barnsley’s Volunteering Fair will take place on Saturday 28 February at The Core, County Way, Barnsley from 10am until 2pm.
There will be a variety of community groups and voluntary organisations attending on the day with promotional information and activities relating to volunteering opportunities to allow people to find out more. The groups that will be attending include:
• Volunteer Centre • Together for Mental Wellbeing • Lets Grow • Healthwatch Barnsley • Addaction • Red Cross • Healthy Eating • Barnsley Beacon • DIAL
There will be a number of activities on the day to let people have a go at some of the volunteering opportunities including hand/arm/back massage, micro volunteering and bird box making.
Beth Cooper, Volunteer Centre Co-ordinator said, “The day will be a great opportunity for people to come along and find out more about volunteering and some of the organisations in Barnsley that need volunteers. Anyone can drop-in throughout the day and my colleagues and I will be available to chat to people about other opportunities on offer”.
Refreshments will also be for sale on the day with the money going to the Tiny Hearts Appeal at Barnsley Hospital.
