Student Volunteering Week 2012

Well that's it all over for another year! Student Volunteering Week took place between the 18th-24th February and during that time we had an absolute blast meeting lot's of lovely new volunteers (and some old faces) at our different taster sessions. Here's a run down of what we got up to...

Kingston Hill campus's green space and woodland got a bit of tender loving care as a hard working group of volunteers spruced up a much loved nature trail. You can find a full report on the day and why the work done is so vital over at the Bio-diversity blog!

Walking retired greyhounds at Hersham is one of our regular volunteering opportunities but once a year we make a special trip to give the kennels where the dogs live a fresh lick of paint. It's not all hard work, as well as all the painting the volunteers also got the take the dogs for a walk! Tina gave us a full update on taking part in this project which you can find here.

We also held drop in sessions on campus with Knit for Peace and to make bunting for local community organisations. Both provided a great opportunity to meet new people and take a break from lectures whilst doing something useful for others. Perfect!

You can find all the pictures from the events on our Facebook page. We'd like to thank everyone that came along to one of our activities and also Chris, Christina, Farha, Tina, Natalie and Emma for providing lot's of new volunteer stories for our blog!
