Joint Volunteers’ Week Celebration Event
Thursday 4th June 10am-2pm Community Corner, Rotherham Hospital
The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is hosting a joint event with Voluntary Action Rotherham (VAR) as part of Volunteers Month 2015 celebrations in Rotherham.
The event will take place on Thursday 4th June from 10.00am – 2.00pm in the Community Corner in the main entrance of Rotherham Hospital.
The Trust’s Volunteer Service and VAR will be joined at the event by other organisations and community groups who involve volunteers in the delivery of activities or services for community benefit. The focus will be on recognising the contribution which volunteers make to the town, raising the profile of volunteering in Rotherham and hopefully inspiring more people to consider volunteering by showcasing some of the volunteering opportunities which are available.
Amongst the organisations and groups attending are:
• TRFT Volunteer Service
• Rotherham Volunteer Centre
• Guide Dogs
• MHA Care Homes
• Victim Support
• The Rotherham Hospice
• SY Police
The event will give local people the opportunity to find out more about supporting patients, or other members of the community, in voluntary roles such as befriending. The organisations involved are also keen to promote voluntary opportunities which help encourage active or outdoor lifestyles to further support health and wellbeing.
If you are an organisation or group and volunteers are part of your team, please get in touch if you’d like to have a presence. Equally please feel free to signpost people with an interest in volunteering to the event, as they will be able to find out about a variety of local volunteering opportunities, meet the people who will support them in their volunteer role and ask any questions which they may have. To book your free place or to find out more please contact Alison Thorp at VAR on 01709 834462 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to seeing you at the event!
