Over the past seven months Michelle Poponne (Shared Volunteer Coordinator) has recruited and supported a group of local people, who have gained invaluable skills by volunteeringtheir time to their community in one of three local community hubs – Meanwhile Gardens, The Venture Community Association and Al-Hasaniya Moroccan Women’s Centre.
To recognise the progress they have made and their great contribution to the Golborne area, 30 volunteers attended the event on Tuesday 25 February at the Mayor’s Parlour, Kensington Town Hall. There they received a certificate from the Mayor and Mayoress and got the chance to meet local Councillors and many of their fellow volunteers.
Michelle Poponne’s role has been funded by Catalyst Gateway – the community development arm of Catalyst Housing. Look out for our in-depth interview with Michelle in the next edition of Here & Now.
We are committed to providing opportunities for our residents to gain experience and develop their skills. If you would like to volunteer your time and contribute to your local area please contact Michelle on 07443 492 179 to discuss volunteer opportunities.
