25th April 2023 saw over 70 people walk through the doors of our very own Heart of the Park in Leigh Park, all with one thing in common: VOLUNTEERING!
Jen and I, Coordinators of Community First’s Volunteering Service, hosted our third of four Volunteering Fayres across West and East Hampshire, which welcomed over 20 exhibitors all showcasing their volunteering opportunities to dozens of community members in attendance. The atmosphere was a buzzing one and the great weather helped many residents of Havant Borough discover all of the opportunities on offer! One volunteer said: “Very, very good and well put together. Interesting people and very good information. Glad I came!”
We were so thankful to all of the exhibitors for supporting and attending our event. One of our exhibitors said: “Enjoyable and well organised event with a good cross section of groups. Well done to the organisers!” Thanks also goes to our amazing Community First ‘Dream Team’ of helpers that took care of so much to ensure the day ran smoothly and successfully!
Ellie from Age Concern Hampshire said: “Well organised, great outreach and good footfall! Always a success!”
Sarah from Enable Ability fed back saying: “Varied groups, nice venue and good size!”
Patricia from Anthony Nolan kindly stated: “There was a friendly, lovely and buzzy atmosphere!”
Claire from Guide Dogs shared her experience of the event: “It was a lovely atmosphere and good footfall!”
