Bristol based business regularly approach Volunteer Bristol to enquire about opportunities to support the local voluntary and community sector.  

They are looking for projects that will take a day for a group of about 10 employees to complete, and are prepared to undertake a wide variety of tasks.  

While we are aware that the majority of organisations want regular volunteers, perhaps there are times when your organisation has some ground that needs clearing, some painting done, carpets shampooed or leaflets distributed?

Volunteer Bristol would love to hear from all local organisations that have ideas for challenge activities so that we can link local groups and businesses for mutual gain.

To chat about opportunities or for more information, please call Sian on 0117 989 7734 or email manager@volunteerbristol.org.uk

Here’s a great opportunity for any one with dementia - with or without a formal diagnosis - to give their time and skills to help set up for the Strawberry Tea Party in Barton Hill on Tuesday 7 October from 11am to 2pm. 
 
This volunteering taster comes from Dementia Supported Volunteering (DSV), an innovative pilot project run by Volunteer Bristol @ Voscur, to encourage and enable people with dementia to try out volunteering, alongside trained Volunteer Mentors. 
 
If you are a family member/friend/carer of someone with dementia, this opportunity is also open to you, to volunteer with the person you support, in a small, friendly team. Come along and help us do some simple food preparation and make the place look welcoming. And once we’ve worked up an appetite- we can all stay on for the Tea Party, hosted by Up Our Street and LinkAge.
To find out more, contact Subitha Baghirathan, Co-ordinator of Dementia Supported Volunteering on 0117 898 7734 or email: subitha@volunteerbristol.org.uk
