We were successful in being awarded some Big Lottery funding for some events to celebrate volunteering. We hosted three event during the year – Newcastle, Hanley and Leek.
The events were very successful, with over 40 stall holders coming to let people know about different volunteering opportunities that are available in our communities.
We had over 150 people attend the events in total, who enjoyed among other things – hand massages, pot making, nail painting, craft activities, live music, hot drinks and cake!
We would like to thank the National Lottery for funding these events, all staff and volunteers involved in in organising and helping out on the day and all the organisations who came along.
