Thinking about volunteering? Come to Eastbourne Library to find out how!

Volunteer Centre East Sussex, the accredited centre that promotes, supports and develops volunteering across East Sussex, will host an Ask the Expert session at Eastbourne Library, Grove Road, Eastbourne BN21 4TL on Tuesday, 25 November 2014 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. All are welcome.

With hundreds of volunteering opportunities available in the county, knowing how to get involved can seem daunting. Ask the Expert sessions provide an opportunity for the public to speak to experienced local volunteers, or Volunteering Champions, who can answer questions about volunteering, discuss current volunteering opportunities and advise on how to find the perfect role. 

We'd be grateful if you could help spread the word about this event by putting up this poster. If you'd like us to post hard copies, please contact us.

According to Valuing the Voluntary Sector, more than 60,000 people volunteer approximately 134,000 hours per week in the county, making an economic contribution valued at more than £80 million annually.

Peter Field, Lord-Lieutenant for East Sussex, said “Volunteering keeps you young, keeps you active, keeps you involved and gives you a purpose in life. Without volunteers our society’s structure would probably completely collapse. We’re very grateful to volunteers because not only are they giving something to the community but they’re also getting something from the community as well. It’s a great activity and I would encourage everybody to get involved.”
