A brand new, three day event to celebrate and harness the power of volunteering has been launched.
Kicking off in May 2020, Volunteer Expo will connect, educate and inspire volunteers, organisations and charities to change lives and take action in their communities.
The event is hosted by Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland, one of the world’s leading membership and humanitarian service organisations in the world.
Rotary members worldwide have been making a difference through volunteering for over 100 years and give more than 110 million volunteer hours each year on community and humanitarian service projects.
Volunteering plays a huge part in our society and transforms millions of lives.”
Volunteer Expo, which will take place at the NEC, one of the country’s leading venues for organisers, exhibitors and visitors.
The event will incorporate a lively exhibition, engaging seminars and workshops, as well as hands-on, on-site volunteering projects and activities.
Amanda Watkin, General Secretary of Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland commented: “We are incredibly excited to be bringing Volunteer Expo to life.
“Volunteering plays a huge part in our society and transforms the lives of millions of people around the country every single year.
“This event really is about taking everything that volunteering has to offer under one roof and bringing it to life.
“We’re connecting long time volunteers and people who know they want to get involved with a good cause, but maybe don’t know where or how, with organisations and charities who need support to get their great causes moving forward.”
Registration for the event will be opening soon.
