Vol­un­teers needed to make an Im­pact

Web­site alerts peo­ple to op­por­tu­ni­ties in county

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
