Monthly Feature - With Michelle Hart From The CVS
Today we welcomed Michelle Hart from the CVS for her monthly update on the world of volunteering! Michelle spoke to West Herts Drivetime about how organisations can talk to the CVS about finding volunteers. The CVS deal with approx 1500 enquires a year from people wanting to volunteer and of course, this time of year there are many students wanting volunteer work.
One-off volunteering opportunities are available too, such as an event at Hatfield House on the 23rd July - a Battle Proms Event run by a community recycling group called Complete Wasters! Details on how to help at this event can be found on their website www.completewasters.co.uk or search www.do-it.org.uk from the volunteer centres postcode for 'complete wasters'.
Michelle spoke about Good Practice in working with volunteers, by way of the 6 Point Plan and details can be found on www.cvsstalbans.org.uk and this has a link to the National Volunteering website, www.do-it.org.uk. or you can call on 01727 852657.
