£500 donated by MHWI to new local volunteer project

We are delighted to announce that £500 raised from our highly successful film evening last November and our Christmas raffle (so generously supported by a whole host of local businesses) resulted in a cheque being present to VASL (Voluntary Action South Leicestershire).

Diane Claridge (1)-w500-h500The money is to go to a new project, called Community Champions, where volunteers not only befriend local people but also work with them to support them to take part in community activities, leaving a sustainable outcome for all concerned.   Diane Claridge, MHWI member, and employee of VASL accepted the cheque.

If you would like to know more about volunteering for the Community Champions project or about other volunteering opportunities in the areas, go to VASL’s website for more information and contact details.  You could also speak to Diane at the next monthly meeting.
