A much-loved community hub in Shiregreen is appealing for volunteers and showcasing its range of services to mark International Volunteer Day on 5 December.
The committee at Shiregreen Neighbourhood Centre, which is supported by Sanctuary Housing, is on the look-out for new volunteers to help deliver the wide variety of clubs and activities on offer.
Volunteers already perform an integral role at the centre, working in the Shiregreen Social Café, toddler groups and other services.
In the run-up to Christmas, volunteers will be getting into the festive spirit at special events including breakfast with Santa, Christmas dinner and a seasonal children’s party.
Julie Fabian, chair of Shiregreen Neighbourhood Centre, said: “The work we do simply wouldn’t be possible without our volunteers. We offer a wide variety of services and as such we need people from all walks of life to help us continue our work in the local community. We take a real pride in everything we do.”
Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, Melanie King, added: “Volunteers make a real difference not only to the work of the centre, but to most of the projects we support around the Shiregreen neighbourhood.
“International Volunteer Day has given us a fantastic opportunity to promote the activities at Shiregreen Neighbourhood Centre and celebrate the contributions that volunteers make across our communities.”
Anybody who would like to volunteer at Shiregreen Neighbourhood Centre, or attend any of the activities or groups, can call the centre on 0114 245 9200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
International Volunteer Day is aimed at raising awareness of the contributions that volunteers make to their communities and celebrate their efforts.
