Volunteers Fair being held for all those looking to lend a hand in Warwickshire

A VOLUNTEER Fair is being held at Market Hall Museum in Warwick for anyone in Warwickshire looking to lend a hand.

The free event, on Thursday May 11, aims to encourage an increase in volunteering across the county as well as support The Big Help Out, an official Coronation initiative.

The Volunteer Fair, which is hosted in partnership with Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action, will showcase a variety of volunteer and trustee roles available across Warwickshire that people can get involved in, and encourage everyone to lend a hand and make a change to help their local communities.

The fair will be a drop-in event between 10.30am and 1pm, and will have plenty of friendly and welcoming volunteers from a variety of organisations in attendance.

Each volunteer will be more than happy to chat with visitors about their roles and help each person to find out about the many different ways to get involved.

Volunteering has many benefits that can help those who participate, as well as being able to help others. It provides opportunities to meet new people, increase self-confidence, and try something new. Volunteers can also gain and develop new skillsets which are great to enhance a CV, broaden horizons and to discover new passions and interests.

Monica Fogarty, Warwickshire County Council’s Chief Executive, said: “As a community we can all come together to make a positive impact through volunteering. The simple act of offering a helping hand can make a big difference, not just to those in need, but also to our own health and wellbeing.

“The WCAVA Volunteer Fair will be a great opportunity to meet lots of friendly groups and organisations who would like to take on more volunteers from across the county, and I strongly encourage you to visit this event to meet new people and get involved.

“Whether you can offer an hour, a day, or time on a more regular basis, together we can step forward and make a lasting difference to help make Warwickshire the best it can be, and build a brighter future for all.”
