Our first Volunteer Recruitment Fair of the year took place this weekend, in order to let members of the public know about the wide variety of volunteering opportunities available in North Tyneside. Representatives from 20 voluntary and community organisations held information stalls at the event, which was held for the first time at The Forum Shopping Centre in Wallsend.
Feedback from the event was extremely positive with comments from stallholders including:
“Lots of great contacts and lots of potential volunteers – a great day! Thanks for organising.”
“Great footfall and lots of interest – thank you for organising a really positive event.”
“Good opportunity to meet potential volunteers and partnership work opportunities.”
If you are interested in volunteering but don’t know where to start, or if you are a North Tyneside organsiation looking to recruit new volunteers, VODA can help! Get in touch for more information.
