Leah Swain, Chief Executive at Community First Yorkshire, said: “Volunteering is a great way to build up you CV, learn new skills, make new friends and give something back to your community. Whatever your reason for volunteering, there are many different ways that you can give your time. Whatever way you choose to give your time and skills, your volunteering contribution makes a huge difference to your community. We’re hoping that many people will take that vital step towards volunteering at the Fair.”
Whether you’re a work parent seeking a way to increase the number of local activities available for your, or a retired person keen to pass on your skills, or you wish to get involved with a new hobby, the Celebrating Sleights Volunteering Fair has something for everyone
