We’re starting to think very seriously about how to top the success of last year’s Volunteers Week when we held a Volunteers parade and celebration fair in Swadlincote. Please let us have your feedback about these two ideas.
South Derbyshire’s Got Talent
Of course we have. South Derbyshire has singers, dancers, storytellers, jugglers, musicians and many more talented entertainers.
As part of the celebrations for Volunteers Week 2010 in June, The Volunteer Centre would like to offer anyone with any kind of talent the opportunity to volunteer to take part in a very special “South Derbyshire’s Got Talent” show.
If you would like to be part of this unique celebration of volunteering, or if you know of anyone else who would like perform their own party piece, get in touch with the Dave Thomas in the Volunteer Centre to find out more.
In the next few weeks, invitations will be sent out for your volunteers to be part of the audience for this gala show, as well as a chance to take part of a day of fun activities to celebrate Volunteers Week.
Volunteer Speed Matching
It’s like speed dating, but where you find a volunteer, rather than true love, although you shouldn’t ignore the possibility that both might happen!
The way it all works is that a number of organisations come together with a number of volunteers who spend a few minutes talking to each other before moving on to the next conversation. At the end of the session, you will have had the chance to speak to a lot of people and the potential volunteers will have had a chance to speak to a number of different organisations about volunteering with them.
The Volunteer Centre team is thinking very seriously about running a Speed Matching event as part of Volunteers Week 2010. If your organisation would like to be part of this exciting and lively event, please contact Dave Thomas.
