Lord Mayor Thanks Nirvana Volunteers

Volunteering within Leicester was once again put under the spotlight as Leicester Nirvana FC attended a thank you event on Monday 25th November 2013, hosted by the Right Worshipful The Lord Mayor of Leicester Councillor Mustafa Kamal at the town hall. The event brought together approximately 60 volunteers from across the city from gardening clubs to sports clubs as well as many more.

 

Ivan Liburd who attended on behalf of Nirvana said.

“It was fantastic to see such a wide range of people being recognised for their positive contributions to society. Leicester is fortunate to have such a thriving voluntary sector, this should be harnessed and supported to deliver much needed services across the city for years to come”.

“Nirvana members will continue to support communities by volunteering our time, as will many other individuals and organisations in Leicester. With many external pressures making it increasingly difficult to maintain volunteers, it is frightening to even consider a city without this committed wealth of human resource”.

According to the cabinet office community life survey in January-April 2013, just under 23% of people had been involved in getting together to support a community project at least once in the last year, even though three times as many people (68%) were aware of opportunities to get involved in a community project.

Nirvana is always looking for new ways to offer Bespoke-Volunteering opportunities, understanding that time and commitments are precious. A misconception of volunteering for a football club is that you need to know something about the actual game of football. There are many areas of work that are needed (but not exclusive) to deliver the best service to our members and to help make a difference to children’s lives.
