Volunteers are sought for Tall Ships Regatta

Volunteers are being sought to take part in a series of events including this summer’s Tall Ships Regatta.

On Saturday, February 6, from 10am to 1pm, Northumberland CVA will be holding a Volunteer Recruitment Fair at the Blyth Workspace on Quay Road, in partnership with Active Northumberland, Port of Blyth and the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta.

Blyth Battery, Phoenix Theatre, The Tall Ships Regatta and Alzheimers Society are just some of the organisations who will be at the fair to talk about their volunteer opportunities.

Anne Kidd, Northumberland CVA’s development officer for volunteering, said: “Volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together.

“It’s a two-way street; there are loads of benefits to doing something for a good cause – you can learn new skills, meet new people, or help your career.

“Volunteering on your CV will help you to stand out from the crowd when it comes to getting a job, a university or college place. Wherever you want to go in life, volunteering can help you get there.”

Turn up to the event, or for more information, call (01670) 858688 or visit www.northumberlandcva.org.uk/volunteering
