A WEEK celebrating the contribution made by volunteers came to an end with a festival at The Regal in Tenbury.

It was held as part of National Volunteers’ Week, to encourage people to find out more about local volunteering opportunities and showcase some of the many local organisations looking for new volunteers.

The event was organised by Malvern Hills Volunteering - a non-profit organisation, supported by the South Worcestershire Citizens Advice Bureau and Malvern Hills District Council, which promotes volunteering, provides volunteer brokerage to non-profit organisations and help individuals looking to volunteer find the right opportunity.

“The Volunteers’ Fair in Tenbury is a fantastic opportunity for people who live or work locally to come and find out more about the many varied, fun, challenging and rewarding opportunities available with local organisations,” said Jacqueline Smith, a volunteer development worker for Malvern Hills Volunteering.

“Volunteering has changed dramatically in recent years to adapt to our busy lifestyles and plenty of organisations offer flexible and short-term roles during the day, in the evenings and at weekends too, welcoming just a few hours of people’s time a month.”
