Volunteers Week 2018

V.I.P. Event

Volunteering In the Park

Saturday 2nd June

 We all know that Volunteers are extremely Important People and that it is good for Volunteers to get recognition for their contribution to the many voluntary and statutory organisations throughout our area

 As part of this year’s celebrations we would like to host an event at the Community Garden in Eglinton Park. As part of this we would welcome organisations and their volunteers to come along and showcase the work that they do. This event would also be publicised to the wider community to come along and find out what you all do.

 I know that this is an outside venue but we are very optimistic about sourcing marquees that we are able to use which will provide shelter from the elements – hopefully it is shelter from the sun.

 The planning for this is in early stages and we would like to contact as many organisations as possible who may be interested in taking part.

 We are open to all ideas and being the year of young people it would be great if we could showcase the work of the young volunteers in our community

 We hope to be able to provide some entertainment to suit all in the form of water balloon piñata, Tug of war and anything else that people can come up with.

 We would appreciate if you could take 2 minutes of your time to complete the survey monkey below – There are only 4 questions.

 Please feel free to pass this on to any networks you may have.

 The closing date for this survey is Friday 30th March 2018
