Volunteer For Cambridge 2018 - Book your stall - 30/07/2018

Please see the following from the City Council.

We are delighted to inform you that Volunteer for Cambridge is back!

Some of you have previously been involved in Volunteer for Cambridge, some have never been involved, and some of you wanted to take part but unfortunately missed the deadline.

We are pleased to invite you all to take part in Volunteer for Cambridge 2018!

This free event will take place on Saturday 20th October at the Cambridge Guildhall. Like the previous V4C event’s, there will be a dedicated networking session from 10am-11am, before the event open’s to the public. The event will officially open to the public at 11am and will close at 4pm.

Last year’s Volunteer for Cambridge event had nearly 90 different voluntary, charity organisations and groups take part, as well as nearly 900 members of the public, who came along to learn more about volunteering and what volunteering goes on in the city. Take a look at our V4C 2017 video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/10ZaMpKdmGk-cVtZNk2tLTSPbcY5plaC4/view?ts=5b45c2e4 you may spot yourself and those of you that have not taken part will get a feel for what to expect if you attend V4C 2018. You can also see some of the pictures taken at V4C 2017: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1QGyzsQaAaZyq2S3uLXGnIw49iBdE_C8X

The aims of the event are to highlight what brilliant and diverse volunteering opportunities there are in Cambridge, as well as getting more people involved in local volunteering, residents and students alike.

If you are looking to recruit volunteers and would like to register your local voluntary organisation to take part in the biggest volunteering event in Cambridgeshire please complete the following registration form: https://goo.gl/forms/tnq33W2AooAMPpgJ3

Registration closes on 22 August. Please be aware that registration for the fair does not guarantee you a stall as we are limited to how many organisations can have a stall/table.

You will be informed either way by the end of August.

PLEASE NOTE LAST YEAR WE HAD A NUMBER OF ORGANISATIONS THAT DID NOT TURN UP ON THE DAY AND DID NOT INFORM US BEFOREHAND. WE DO UNDERSTAND THAT IN SOME CASES DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES THIS CAN HAPPEN, HOWEVER WE ARE VERY LIMITED ON SPACE AND BECAUSE WE DID NOT GET INFORMED BEFORE THE EVENT WE COULD NOT OFFER THE STALLS TO OTHER ORGANISATIONS THAT WERE ON OUR WAITING LIST.  If you know that you may not be able to attend please try and let us know at least a week before the event.

Important information for stallholders – Last year we were made aware of a small number of groups selling items/asking for donations. Please note if your group/organisation takes part in V4C 2018 you will not be permitted to sell items or ask for monetary donations at the event.

Please do feel free to spread the word about V4C 2018 with any other local voluntary and charity groups that may be interested in taking part.

If you have any problems accessing any of the above links, please let me know and I will send in a different format.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
