Do you want to do good for your local community, develop your skills and make new friends, but you haven’t got the time to make a regular commitment?
Handy helpers is a unique initiative which enables you to take part in a wide range of one-off volunteering opportunities in the local community. You can pick and choose what activities you want to participate in based on your interests and availability.
From community gardening to decorating charity premises and event logistics, you will gain experience in various settings while actively contributing to the local community.
There’s no long-term commitment, just get involved in the activities that suit you. As an added feel good factor, you’ll get access to relevant training and you will get rewards for changing the world around you!
Registration for Handy Helpers is now open. To sign up, just click on the link Handy Helpers Registration.
