DROP-IN sessions will be held at the Basingstoke Discovery Centre to provide more information about volunteering and to encourage more people to help in their local community.

Next Thursday, and on the last Thursday of each month, staff from the Volunteer Centre, provided by Basingstoke Voluntary Services, will hold the sessions to answer questions, make appointments and point people to local voluntary and community groups that need the help and support of volunteers.

Sarah Robinson, volunteering manager at Basingstoke Voluntary Services, said: “We want to make ourselves even more available to the community, so we will now be at the Discovery Centre on a monthly basis to provide information and guidance on how and where to volunteer.

“Volunteering can make a huge difference in your life.

“It can also help improve your CV and give you a reference.”
