Volunteer Fair in Carndonagh 31.05.22

INTERESTED in making a difference? - Come along to the Volunteer Fair in Carndonagh.
Following on from Carndonagh Smart Village training and the needs highlighted through the ‘Envision Inishowen’ series in 2021, Carndonagh is hosting a Volunteer Fair on Thursday 16th June from 7pm - 9pm in the Colgan Hall.
The whole idea of smart communities is about sharing information, finding ways to work together better, working smarter not harder, and encouraging new people to get involved. Most of the volunteer opportunities are practical, from gardening, clean ups, administration, painting to organising events. Every type of activity, skill and interest can be an opportunity to make Carn a great place to live, work and play!

This event will provide an opportunity for individuals to meet and chat face-to-face with local groups and clubs in Carndonagh. Áine Mc Laughlin, Development Officer Inishowen Development Partnership explains: “Whether you’re a student, retired, a business owner, or are simply curious about volunteering or want to find out more about what’s on offer in Carndonagh, this event is ideal for you.”

The Fair expects to showcase 20 plus Carndonagh clubs, groups and charities representing a wide range of organisations - from sport clubs to community groups and the arts, and more. Everyone is welcome to come stroll around the many stalls which will be exhibiting on the night and learn about volunteer opportunities and general information about the amazing work non-profits are doing in Carndonagh.

Interested volunteers are encouraged to attend and learn more about the fantastic work, with no obligation to join. The Fair is open to all ages and there is no need to book, just come along. Helen Nolan, Co-Founder & CEO, Spraoi agus Spórt added: “The Volunteer Fair will be a great opportunity for members of the community both young and old who would like to consider volunteering their time to see the variety of opportunities that are available locally in Carndonagh. Volunteers make a real difference to the lives of others, and I would encourage anyone who has an hour to spare be it weekly, monthly, or annually to come along and meet the great organisations who will be there on the night.”

The evening is aiming to be informal and informative, a drop by and browse the stalls event. You can pick up info, chat to groups, find out what is going on and then consider your options, if any, that suit on the night. Or just take the information away and decide later.
