Discover local volunteering opportunities at ‘speed matching’ event

Volunteer Speed Matching event in Patchway.

Have you ever thought about volunteering but don’t know how to get involved?

Discover local volunteering opportunities in a speed-matching event to find your perfect match!

The Volunteer Centre Patchway, Filton and The Stokes is holding an event for everyone who would like to hear about volunteering opportunities. The Volunteer Speed-Match event will take place at Coniston Community Centre in Patchway (BS34 5LP) on Tuesday 18th February starting at 5.30pm and finishing at 7pm.

Volunteer Speed Match will allow potential volunteers to meet with local charities and hear about a wide range of volunteering opportunities. Learn how you can share your skills and benefit personally from volunteering. Volunteering offers flexibility and can offer short-term and long-term placements, suiting all different skills and life styles!

The event is run in two sessions: In the first half you will meet a number of local organisations and hear a snap-shot of their volunteering opportunities; in the second half you can choose to meet with the three organisations you are most interested in and spend a ten-minute session with each finding out more.

If you like what you hear and want to get involved you can sign up there and then.
