A Volunteer’s day was held at Twigs to encourage new and existing volunteers to mingle, get to know each other a bit more and learn more about what we have to offer. It was deemed a great success!
We had a stand at CAMRA’s annual event in Kidderminster and were able to meet many interested people as well as distributing flyers. The official launch of the Reaching Out project was held with an amazing array of people attending including national and local politicians, councillors, representatives from companies, agencies and volunteers.
The Project Manager and staff attended the local university to take part in a Dragon’s Den with Students interested in volunteering as part of NCS, Job Centre, Remploy, NHS Robertson Centre and WCC connect to meet potential volunteers and give presentations.
In response to requests made by volunteers a cycle club was set up to provide opportunities for people to learn or improve their cycling abilities. It enabled staff and volunteers to socialise and to support one another outside of the role they fulfilled within the Foundation.
