Volunteering at the Community Centre
We are sorry to say goodbye to Jonathan Broughton, who has been volunteering here at the centre. He is moving out of the area and we wish him success for the future.
During his time here he has helped us with many areas including keeping our posters and promotional literature in the centre organised. In addition he has helped out in the office with some of the essential 'behind the scenes' work that keeps the centre running smoothly.
We would welcome someone to replace him. There are many varied jobs that can be undertaken by a volunteer including publicity and promotion, general administration and maintenance. The role can be organised to suit a volunteer's talent and interests. Please get in touch for more details.
