New Year, New You (Leamington)

Take the Sting out of this New Year by volunteering for a good cause!

Find out more at Leamington’s annual volunteering fair on Wednesday, 22nd January 2020, 12.00pm - 2.00pm at the Upper Mall, Royal Priors, Leamington Spa

Local charity support organisation Warwickshire CAVA is kick starting the year with a buzz by hosting it’s annual volunteering fair once again in the Royal Priors shopping centre. This is the 3rd year running that shoppers will be encouraged to go home with a volunteering opportunity along with their last minute sale bargains!

The fair seems to capture the hearts and minds of local people, as last year well over 100 people came along to discuss how they could give their time to a local good cause. Organisers are hopeful that even more will attend this year and have 15 local charities signed up to talk about opportunities. Participating groups include P3, ILEAP, Warwickshire Museum Service, Alzheimers Society, the Leamington Night Shelter, Tools with a Mission, Salvation Army, Warwickshire Vision Support, The Friendship Project for Children and the Leamington Arts Trail.

Helen Wilkinson, Volunteering Co-ordinator for Warwick District at Warwickshire CAVA said:

“More people than ever volunteer these days. There are hundreds of community and voluntary groups across Warwick District who need people to give some time and support, from homeless charities and community centres to support for children, vulnerable adults or animals

“People volunteer for a whole host of reasons: some people want to feel part of something and make friends. For others it’s about giving something back to a cause they feel passionate about. Others volunteer to gain skills and experience that can open new doors in their working lives. Whatever the reason, it’s a win-win as doing good does you good as well as benefitting your local community.”
