Another VAW gone...
Thanks to everyone who was involved in the events during this year’s Volunteer Awareness Week!
Our stalls in The Plaza were completely full and many groups were able to showcase themselves in a prime location in this busy shopper area.

The Careers Expo was very exciting and we meet with some very interesting and keen people looking for voluntary opportunities to help them both, select a career path, and to support their studies. We will be looking to run some workshops shortly around setting up roles for short term or one off jobs and also thinking about how you might be able to engage youth more within your organisation and looking at "roles from home" to extend your reach.

Our March on the 21st June was another success, thank you to all of you who were able to participate and who came back to Community House with us and enjoyed a cuppa and a piece of Birthday Cake.  A special thanks to Brent & Kevin from the Manawatu Scottish Pipe Band. Your Pipes and pace were much appreciated!
