If each of you could pledge just £2.00 to our cause this will go a long way to help with our Crowdfunding.

Geena, Volunteer for 14 years

I enjoy being a volunteer and of use to people. Volunteering is a lovely way to put something back into the community.

As a community organisation, we value the amazing range of skills offered by volunteers recruited through the Volunteer Centre’s bespoke service. Together they promote our ethos, support the wellbeing of our clients and muck-in at events!
