Volunteers are vital

AS National Volunteers' Week approaches, we look at the importance of volunteers to charities like Carlisle Mencap. Read all about it at www.carlislemencaptivate.com

Carlisle Mencaptivate is the blog which takes a more in-depth look at fundraising events and related issues regarding Carlisle Mencap. With a busy time approaching for the charity, Volunteers Week will be a chance for people to come forward and either help out at Carlisle Mencap's fundraising events - which could be anything from operating a tombola to handing out leaflets, stewarding or selling raffle tickets - to other froms of volunteering including driving duties, or helping out at our group activities like the Orchid Club, or by looking after service users on day trips organised by our weekend clubs.

For fundraising volunteer duties, contact Phil Taylor on 07341 865382 or email phil.taylor@carlislemencap.co.uk, and for other volunteering opportunities contact the main office on 01228 674393 or email enquiries@carlislemencap.co.uk
