Pershore Volunteers Fayre Saturday 28th January 2023 10am to 2pm
VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY NEEDED TO SUPPORT PEOPLE IN NEED IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
Pershore residents are being urged to start the new year by helping out in their local community.
Pershore Plus Volunteer Centre and Wychavon District Council will be holding a volunteering fayre on Saturday 28th January at Pershore Town Hall. The event will give attendees a chance to explore all the opportunities available locally including positions with well known charities.
The fayre has been championed by Wychavon District Councilor, Dan Boatright, who is keen to see if more help and support can be found from people within the community, “I understand that it is tough for people right now but if you have any spare time it could really make a difference to someone in need. Volunteering is a great way to put the spirit back into our communities.”
Katreena Barnes, Volunteer Co-Ordinator at Pershore Plus Volunteer Centre says the benefits for the person volunteering are very rewarding, “the volunteers who come to us often think they are signing up to help someone else, but they quickly discover how beneficial volunteering is. You can learn new skills, broaden your social circle and helping someone else makes you feel good which boosts your mental health.”
The event runs from 10am – 2pm at Pershore Town Hall on Saturday 28th January. If you cannot make the event, you can contact Katreena at the volunteer centre by email email@example.com
