Join us at the first Gloucestershire Volunteering Festival

FREE ENTRY  – Friday 8 June 2018, 11am – 3.30pm at The Pavillion, Hatherley Lane, Cheltenham, GL51 6PN.

We are excited to be hosting Gloucestershire’s very first volunteering festival in partnership with our friends at Age UK Gloucestershire and BBC Radio Gloucestershire’s 30,000 Hours of Volunteering campaign.

Come along and help us celebrate the vital contribution made to Gloucestershire charities by volunteers.

Around 30 charities from around the county will join us at the event to showcase the work done by volunteers, and provide information about opportunities to get involved in volunteering.

BBC Radio Gloucestershire’s Dominic Cotter will be broadcasting live from the event between 12 noon and 3pm, so why not pop along and meet him and the team?

We’ll also have activities to watch or get involved with including walking football, circus skills, Morris dancing and musical entertainment. Refreshments will be available.

Here’s some of the charities that have signed up:

  • Glos Fire Brigade
  • Everyman Theatre Association
  • AGEUK/Walking Football
  • Carers Glos
  • Healthwatch
  • Cheltenham Trust
  • P3
  • Reconnect
  • Glos Hospital Charity
  • 2gether Trust
  • Community Connexections
  • Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust
  • Hope for Tomorrow
  • Cotswold Boat Mobility

Whether you have an hour a month to share or an hour a day, please come along and see what opportunities are on offer.

We’ll have more updates next month, as the event draws near…
