Monthly Feature - With Michelle Hart From The CVS
Today on WHD we welcomed Michelle Hart From The CVS and the first topic she spoke about with Danny was a training opportunity for volunteers who participate in Community Car Schemes; such as picking up prescriptions for people. The course is called - Assisting Passengers - Top Tips for Volunteer Car Drivers. The course takes place in Wheathampstead on 28th August and for details and cost, please contact Sally Bauer of the CVS on 01727 852657.
More good news! Volunteering Herts have just been awarded 100k from the Big Lottery Fund! This will help enable long term unemployed people to gain skills and increase their chances of paid employment through volunteering. It will also work hand in hand with local organisations to help develop new voluntary opportunities which meet local needs.
In these trying times, help your community by getting involved. This is not just by volunteering work but for instance, lobbying your local councillor or organising events.
