Today we had our monthly interview with Michelle Hart from the Centre for Voluntary Services.
Michelle told us that with Christmas approaching, lots of opportunities exist to get involved and help out within the community during Christmas and New Year. For instance, you could help Open Door serve Christmas lunch, help the Salvation Army distribute parcels or help Mencap run a playscheme.
For more information on these or any other positions, contact the Centre for Voluntary Services in St Albans on 01727 852657 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call in and see them at 31 Catherine Street, St Albans. You can also get more information at www.cvsstalbans.org.uk.
Michelle also highlighted that a very interesting role to take up is the role of Trustee. They are especially looking for people with HR, Legal or IT experience. A recruitment event for positions of Trustee is being planned for March next year.
And finally, Michelle pointed out that the Centre for Voluntary Services has seen an increase in enquiries from new volunteers - possible due to the current economic situation. They currently have a range of opportunities available and want especially to get those under 25 involved in the community.
