Volunteering fun day in town

A FUN day is to be held in Barnsley and has been organised to promote volunteering in the community.

Voluntary Action Barnsley is behind the event which is taking place at The Civic and Mayor Dorothy Higginbottom has been invited to attend.

The leader of the town’s council, Steve Houghton, will give a keynote speech about volunteering, while Qdos Creates will stage a one-off performance based on being a good neighbour.

There will be music workshops, story time sessions, face painting and circus skills sessions to entertain visitors.

Voluntary organisations from the area will also be attending the event to promote the work that they do in the community.

They will also be looking to recruit more helpers.
