Volunteering Meetups a hit

More than 550 people have come along to our monthly volunteer meetup events over the past three years. In the relaxed ambience of the Southern Cross Garden Bar speakers from 95 of our community organisation members have talked enthusiastically about the volunteer opportunities they have to offer. Matches have been made on the spot as well as new roles created to engage the skills and interests of attendees.

It all began with a conversation two volunteers Chalaka and Claude had back in November 2016. They were looking at ways to promote volunteering and suggested Volunteer Wellington set up a volunteer meetup…..and as they say the rest is history!

Our next meetup group is on Tuesday 12th May 2020, 6.00 - 7.00 pm and you are welcome to come along. If you would like your community organisation to present at one of the 2020 Volunteering meetup sessions contact Julie Thomson
