Volunteers needed to make an Impact
Website alerts people to opportunities in county
Community Impact Bucks has joined forces with local radio station Mix96 to launch www. volunteeringbucks.org. uk, a website designed to get local people excited about volunteering.
The website makes finding volunteering roles in Buckinghamshire easy, with hundreds of opportunities with local charities to choose from.
People search for opportunities by using their postcode to find roles that are convenient and match their interests.
Community Impact Bucks is running a campaign with Mix96 for four weeks.
The campaign launched on January 11 and aims to get people fired up about volunteering while showcasing new website.
The campaign will highlight the volunteering opportunities available in Buckinghamshire, and people will even be able to hear the Mix96 presenters getting out of
the the studio and doing some volunteering at three local charities.
CEO of Community Impact Bucks Nick Phillips said: “We’re excited to see what the Mix96 presenters will discover during their volunteering adventures at three of our local charities in Bucks.
“It’s a tough world out there – the voluntary sector is relied on more than ever before, but without anyone to rely on themselves, things can easily get messy and that’s where Community Impact Bucks and our amazing volunteers can really make a difference.
“So try something new in 2016 and make a positive change in your life and your community.”
Community Impact Bucks says the website is needed because overall 56 per cent of Bucks residents have volunteered in the past year, fewer than in the previous survey of 85 per cent in 2011.
Community Impact Bucks promotes excellence in voluntary and community services by supporting not-for-profits and enabling people to volunteer Buckinghamshire.
