On 14th December 2023, Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale Council for Voluntary Service (BPRCVS) is officially opening the brand-new Volunteering for Wellbeing & Community Hub at Gannow Community Centre.
Doors open at 10 a.m. for people to drop in and discover the world of volunteering. With a wide range of voluntary organisations in attendance, you’ll be able to discuss what their voluntary roles require and how to go about getting started giving something back to your local community.
Join in the volunteer forums and find out what it’s like to be a volunteer straight from the volunteer themselves. Hear from key people involved in volunteering in your community to find out about the benefits of being a volunteer.
BPRCVS’ expert coordinators will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about volunteering, and we have a load of free goody bags to giveaway too!
Volunteer coordinator, Michelle Walker, said of the launch event, “.”
Whether you’re unemployed, retired, socially isolated, or whatever your circumstances are, there is an opportunity out there for you that will make a difference in your life, but also in the lives of others, so come and drop in and find out all about volunteering.
Chief Officer of BPRCVS, Christine Blythe, said of the new Hub, “having recently been awarded the new Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation from the National Association of Voluntary Community Action, for which BPRCVS is the only officially accredited Volunteer Centre in East Lancashire, the new Hub is in safe, experienced hands.
“With decades of experience in volunteering to build upon, the new Volunteering for Wellbeing & Community Hub will revitalise the voluntary sector in Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale.”
