Bolton Lads and Girls Club holds 'volunteer hour'
BOLTON Lads and Girls Club is holding its first-ever volunteer hour for those who want to help make a difference to the lives of young people in the town.
The event will take place tonight at the club in Spa Road from 5pm, to provide an opportunity for people who are interested in volunteering to find out more about what goes on at the club and the different roles they could take on.
The volunteer hour will also be open to current volunteers as a chance to encourage new volunteers, share ideas or talk through any concerns.
The forum will then continue every Monday evening as a drop-in session.
The club currently has more than 200 volunteers without whom they would be unable to open their doors to young people of Bolton seven days a week.
Katherine Howell, Bolton Lads and Girls Club volunteer recruitment co-ordinator, said: “I want people to realise the varied and interesting ways in which they can support the club, of course our focus is and always will be the young people we support, but our volunteer opportunities vary from roles such as youth workers to catering volunteers and charity shop assistants.
“We also need volunteer drivers and are always happy to look at the new skills people have and how to put them to the best use. Volunteering not only supports the clubs programmes but it looks good on a CV, expands your networks of friends, helps you stay active and is ultimately very rewarding.”
The club provides a full training package to all new volunteers and staff are on hand to support you throughout.
To get involved or for further information ring 01204 540 100 or drop in on Monday, November 4, from 5-6pm.
