Discover the joys of volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to develop new skills and meet new people, and next week residents have the chance to find out more at a series of events.

Hammersmith & Fulham Volunteer Centre is running a roadshow from Monday, June 1, until Thursday, June 4, to explain the benefits of helping others in your free time.

Dominic Pinkney, chief executive of H&F Volunteer Centre, said: “Volunteering changes lives. People improve their skills, experience and their confidence. Particularly if they’ve been out of work for a long time, it gives them the confidence to progress.

“When people volunteer they get a lot more out of it than they expect. And it’s broader than you might think, from micro-volunteering in short bursts or online, right through to long term placements.

“Come along and find out what’s possible.”

The H&F Volunteer Centre team roadshow will be running on the following days:

  • Monday, June 1, from 11am to 4pm – The team will be offering free cake and face painting in Parsons Green Park, Fulham.
  • Tuesday, June 2 – The team will be giving out helium balloons in King Street, Hammersmith and letting people know about the great volunteering opportunities in the borough.
  • Wednesday, June 3, from 11am to 3pm – Come and find out more about volunteering at Shepherds Bush Library in Wood Lane, W12 7BF.
  • Thursday, June 4, from 11am to 4pm – The team will be at the West 12 Shopping Centre, Shepherds Bush, W12 8PP.
