On Thursday the 1st of February 2018 PINS attended the Volunteering Fair held at the Dolphin Centre, Darlington.
The focus of the event was to provide an opportunity for charities and community organisations to recruit volunteers, as well as increasing awareness of various charities in attendance.
We have noticed an increase in numbers of people wishing to access PINS services from outside of the Hartlepool area, to meet this need we are developing a new initiative and examining the feasibility of opening PINS satellite offices in areas such as Darlington. This initiative is in the early stages and the PINS team are looking into securing resources for the project; the team were also keen to gauge the interest from volunteers who wish to work with the charity.
The event was a tremendous success we had a lot of interest and spoke to the lots of potential volunteers and several organisations about the initiative.
May we say a huge thank you to all those who were involved in the event.
We'll be updating the news pages as this initiative progresses.
