"I thought volunteering was just about providing care services but was amazed to discover that there are more than 300 organisations in the Cotswolds needing volunteers"
Volunteer Liz

Have you ever wanted to try something different, learn a new skill or extend your circle of friends? If so, come along to Cotswold Volunteer’s Volunteer Fair which will take place on Saturday 12th October at Bingham House, Dyer Street, Cirencester from 10.00 to 12.00.

Groups as diverse as the Cotswold Canal Trust and Corinium Radio will be attending; so whether you would like to assist in the restoration of a waterway or aspire to be the next Terry Wogan or something altogether different, why not come along and find out what is on offer? Remember that volunteering can take an hour a week or a morning/afternoon ; it is also sociable and fun. It also enhances your CV, what more can you want?

"I thought volunteering was just about providing care services but was amazed to discover that there are more than 300 organisations in the Cotswolds needing volunteers - you could be doing anything from knitting tea cosies to raising funds, gardening for a neighbour, or writing a newsletter." says Liz who started volunteering over the summer.

Volunteering is something that everyone can do to make a difference, just by giving a little bit of their time. If you can make a regular commitment that’s great, but you can also sign up for just a day, or even for ten minutes. Cotswold Volunteers are challenging everyone on the 12th to get volunteering by making a Christmas tree decoration and donating it to charity! There will be free demonstrations and expert help on hand and it will only take ten minutes!

For more information please contact Cotswold Volunteers at Bingham House, Dyer Street, Cirencester. Tel: 01285 655646
