Look out for Volunteering Ambassadors at an event near you!
Sheffield is home to many many volunteers – probably over 100,000 in fact. And 15 of them have grouped together to become Volunteering Ambassadors (in fact Rich, who wrote the last entry, is one of them). They are fantastic people, all very different in terms of age, background, working status etc, but with one thing in common: they are all passionate about volunteering and want to let other people know how great it is.
The Volunteering Ambassadors will pop up on this website from time to time. You may meet them out and about too, as they are going to different events across Sheffield to let as many people as possible know about the benefits of volunteering and how to get involved. On Sunday three of them, Chrissie, John and Sarah, braved the rain to have a stall at Picnic in the Park in Endcliffe Park… and their good deeds must have paid off as thankfully the rain eased off once the event started!
I would like to say a big thank you to all the Volunteering Ambassadors for all their great work and enthusiasm – you’re all brilliant! Below are some photos of them (mostly taken by Sarah herself) so you can recognise them when you see them!
