COVENTRY UNIVERSITY VOLUNTEER FAIR OCT 2019

 

On 16th October, Cyrenians attended the Volunteer Fair held at the Coventry University, at The Hub, Jordan Well.  Our stall was manned by Jo Page and Shukry. The fair was organised by Tracy Reay from the Students Union who kindly supplied free tea, coffee & buscuits!

The purpose is to find an enjoyable volunteering experience which is both worthwhile to students and beneficial to local charities. The event was well organised by giving all charities their own barcodes to give out to students who expressed an interest in signing up to volunteer, which is then handed in at the end to the University who send a list of names/emails to each charity a few days later.

It was attended by many other charities, which we had the opportunity to share information with.  We had lots of enthusiastic students expressing an interest in volunteering for Cyrenians, either as as shop assistants at our charity shop, Windsor's & Refreshed, being a fundraiser or a Service Support Assistant on Reception at our Head Office.

We have already recruited several new eager students which is great!
