Vol­un­teers needed to help Mayor

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

A CALL for vol­un­teers has gone out to help sup­port the char­i­ties cho­sen by the Mayor of Peter­bor­ough.

Work is un­der way to cre­ate a team of vol­un­teers to help the Mayor’s Of­fice at Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil put on an ar­ray of so­cial func­tions through­out the civic year.

The fundrais­ing team will work with vol­un­teers from the cho­sen char­i­ties to sup­port a va­ri­ety of events from the pres­ti­gious Mayor’s Ball and Last Night of the Proms, to cof­fee morn­ings and mu­si­cal evenings.

The coun­cil’s Mayor’s Of­fi­cer, Jackie Holmes, said: “This is a great op­por­tu­nity to de­velop new skills, gain ex­pe­ri­ence and en­joy work­ing as part of a team. We are keen to re­cruit en­thu­si­as­tic, hard­work­ing vol­un­teers with a can-do at­ti­tude.

“We need peo­ple who have a few hours to spare for day­time, evening, and week­end events. In re­turn vol­un­teers will have the op­por­tu­nity to work on an ar­ray of char­ity events and gain in­valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence in the char­ity sec­tor.”

Each year the Mayor of Peter- bor­ough se­lects at least one char­ity to sup­port, for which funds are raised through­out the year.

Mrs Holmes said: “Fundrais­ing events are tra­di­tion­ally sup­ported by vol­un­teers at­tached to the cho­sen char­ity, but ex­tra help is al­ways needed.”

The re-elec­tion of the Mayor of Peter­bor­ough will take place at the an­nual coun­cil meet­ing on May 23 when Any­one who is keen to help should drop in to the Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre, Bridge Street, Peter­bor­ough or the Mayor’s Of­fice at the Town Hall or call 01733 452319.
