A booking form is now available for the Volunteers' Week Celebration, Information and Promotion event taking place on Saturday 3 June 2023, 11am to 3pm in Nottingham's Arboretum.
Please come along, and invite all your volunteers and colleagues to this event!
This booking form (link downloads Word document) will not only save your space at the event, it will also let us know what resources you are able to bring, or would like us to provide. We have a limited number of tables, chairs and shelters (these could be gazebos, market stalls or small marquees).
Your stall at the event will be your organisation's base on the day where you can promote your service, your opportunities, offer an activity to visitors and anything else that you want to do. However, this is not a fundraising event.
Many of us will have volunteer teams who have been volunteering remotely for the past three years or so. Your stall can also be a rallying point for these volunteers where they can meet face to face, possibly for the first time. We can optimistically imagine that a number of volunteer picnics will take place around the stalls in the warm sunshine.
There will be a number of activities, displays and walks on offer from organisations taking part, so if you and your volunteers can also offer an activity on your stall, or more widely in the Arboretum, it would make the day even better.
We will have the use of the bandstand, so if you have musicians, dancers or performers who would like a slot, please let us know because this would add a lot to the whole day.
In fact, we would welcome any ideas that you can bring to make this celebration one that volunteers will enjoy.
Vehicle access to the Arboretum will be available on the day in order to deliver your equipment and materials. However, there is no general parking on the site and we recommend that your volunteers and colleagues use the tram to get to the event.
For more details, please contact our Volunteering Development Officer, Dave Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07564 040767.
Book your place for the biggest and best volunteer celebration in Nottingham in several years, and look out for more information in the coming weeks.
