A two-year supported volunteer pilot was celebrated with volunteers, staff and trustees from Volunteer Centre Fenland, plus the funding panel, at a special event in March.
The project, funded by Roddons, sought to recruit Roddons tenants and promote volunteering in the March/March East area. The project has been a great success, with volunteers helping at public events and raising money for charity. Two volunteers even found their way into employment as a result of the scheme.
Annette Houghton, manager of Volunteer Centre Fenland, said: “It is a shame that the project is coming to an end, however we are looking into sourcing further funding to replicate across Fenland, if possible.”
