Are you interested in volunteering, want to help people and have fun? The Preston Volunteer Treasure Hunt arranged by Age Concern Central Lancashire gives you the opportunity to hunt for your own golden volunteering opportunity.
Across Preston on 22 January 2014 just for one day organisations will be opening their doors to help you gain experience and information about volunteering in the community.
The initiative is designed to help people discover the benefits of volunteering and find the right volunteering opportunity. It will help identify skills and how they can volunteer in each organisation or in their own particular area as well as helping find volunteer and support work in the local community.
You need the treasure map shown here. You can get more information and download the map at www.fiftyfiveplus.org.uk
On the map are shown all organisations taking part. Follow the map to find the “Golden” volunteering experience.
As an extra enticement visit 5 different venues and be entered into a prize draw for a special gift voucher.
Organised in partnership with Volunteering One Lancashire, Age Concern Central Lancashire and Lancashire County Council.
Based at Arkwright House in Preston Age Concern Central Lancashire was established in 1981 and provides a wide range of quality services for older people within the boundaries of Central Lancashire to meet the needs identified by older people and their carers.
