APPEAL For Inverclyde Volunteers Past And Present To Share Their Stories

3 May, 2021 | Community Noticeboard

CVS Inverclyde wants to hear from people who have volunteered in Inverclyde over the past 25 years.

The organisation wants to recognise those who have contributed their time to Inverclyde’s third sector and community organisations.

The initiative — 25 Faces of Volunteering — will profile Inverclyde volunteers from the past quarter century and highlight their stories; in particular, how their volunteering experience helped them develop their skills or confidence and progress in their work or studies.

CVS Inverclyde chief executive Charlene Elliott, said: “Volunteers are the beating heart of the third sector and without them many organisations providing essential services wouldn’t be able to operate.

“We know that volunteers have made an incredible impact in the past year all over the country and at one point we had over 600 volunteers registered in Inverclyde. We must find ways to express gratitude and celebrate the time and effort volunteers give.

“This year is CVS Inverclyde’s 25th anniversary, so we are reaching out to individuals who have volunteered in Inverclyde to find out how volunteering has helped them (whether professionally or personally) and the impact their volunteering has made.

“We know that many people in Inverclyde will have amazing stories to tell about their time volunteering — we want to share these and discover what they are doing now.”

Those happy to share their experience should email catriona.macleod@cvsinverclyde.org.uk or call 01475 711733.
