Lots of opportunities to volunteer

PEOPLE who are interested in volunteering in Wellingborough can get help finding a placement from Nene Valley Community Action (NVCA).

NVCA has a wide range of opportunities available ranging from administration to youth work.

Placements can range from those involving art, befriending, catering, driving and gardening to retail, training or trusteeship.

People can go along to speak to NVCA about volunteering at drop-in sessions held from 10am to 3.30pm on Mondays at the Wellingborough Council Tithe Barn offices.

Jenny Rolfe, volunteer co-ordinator at NVCA, said volunteering was worthwhile and vital to local organisations.

She said: “Volunteers offer valuable and important support to organisations.

“With the range of placements available now is the time to get involved.

“It’ a win-win situation. Our communities cannot survive without the valuable services of volunteers and volunteers themselves have the opportunity to learn new skills, enhance existing ones and meet new people.”
