Borough Mayor Cllr Clare Head is spearheading a volunteer recruitment drive to encourage more people to give their time to support others in the community. The Mayor is encouraging people to sign up to work with local organisations and charities through Richmond Council for Voluntary Services or to help improve the area where they live through the borough council's Community Resource Bank.
On Saturday, 3rd September the Mayor will be joined by representatives from the CRB and Richmond Council for Voluntary Services and will be giving out flyers asking people to think about what they could give in terms of time, knowledge, and resources, like computer work or driving. People will be able to say whether they would like to work with RCVS, the Community Resource Bank or both.
Once they have completed and sent back the form, they will be contacted by representatives of the Council or RCVS to match their time and talents to particular organisations or projects.
Please join the Mayor outside Armstrong's Butchers in St Margarets Road on Saturday, 3rd September from 11.00am to 1.00pm.
