COVENTRY UNIVERSITY VOLUNTEER FAIR 2018

OnCov Uni 31st Oct 2018 1 31st October, Cyrenians attended the Volunteer Fair held at the Coventry University, at The Hub, Jordan Well.  Our stall was manned by Jo Page and Jack Swinburn. The fair was organised by Tracy Reay from the Students Union.

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 and a new system put in place by giving all organisations their own barcodes to give out to students who expressed an interest in signing up to volunteer.

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 Service Support Assistants on Reception at our Head Office.
