There are so many different volunteer roles available that there really is something for everyone. No matter what your interests, skills or experiences are, or how much time you have available, Volunteer Now! wants to help you to find something that fits.
Magazine compiler – Sussex Coast Talking News
Sussex Coast Talking News was formed in 1975 and is wholly run and supported by volunteers; they produce fortnightly recordings of local news, taken with permission from our local newspapers, and also a talking magazine.
It is looking for volunteers who would like to join the production team, producing a magazine for inclusion in the recordings. The magazine runs to about 35 minutes and the packages are very varied and diverse.
The volunteers would be self-sufficient, preparing, producing and recording their magazines but there would always be a very friendly team who will help and support with the production.
Also in the news this week, a Littlehampton priest has retired after 28 years of service, hundreds celebrated Littlehampton Harbour festival and Wick Week and a metal detectorist has recovered a groom’s lost wedding ring on Rustington beach.
Sporting activity coordinator and management committee member – Arundel Youth Club
Arundel Youth Club aims to provide social and education experiences for young people aged eight to 18 years of age. It is looking for someone to coordinate, plan and deliver a varied and inspirational range of sporting activities for young people during the Tuesday night youth club sessions.
It is also looking for someone to join the friendly and dedicated management committee to help provide opportunities for young people.
It is looking specifically for someone with fundraising skills that can help raise funds to support and develop the club further.
