you spare some time? New Burnham volunteer register launches
new volunteering service has launched in Burnham-On-Sea this week
where residents can register their interest in helping local events
and groups in the town.
new service, called 'BOS Jobs', enables residents to join a register
that lists members of the community who are willing to volunteer
their time to help and support events in the town. It is also
a register of groups requiring the services of volunteers.
Bullimore from Burnham Town Team, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"There are many benefits to volunteering, including making
new friends, improving your self esteem and confidence, helping
employment prospects and also networking and learning new opportunities."
She added: "We need an army of local volunteers to help with
marshalling and setting up events in the town, meeting and greeting
visitors and other activities in the daytime as well as evenings
just a couple of hours at a time. Groups can also help
provide manpower and in reciprocation receive the help of volunteers."
