Volunteer Recruitment Fairs
We held our latest Volunteer Recruitment Fair on Thursday 20 April at St John's & King's Park Church in Dalkeith. Twenty organisations all came along to promote a wide variety of volunteering opportunities. Around 100 people attended the event and feedback has been very positive from stallholders and interested volunteers.
