How Do I Attend the Recruitment Weekend? 

There is no charge to attend the Volunteer Recruitment Weekend or become a volunteer, however all attendees must be aged 16 years or over and in good physical and mental health.

Volunteering may not be suitable for those with some disabilities, particularly where these affect mobility, concentration, dexterity and co-ordination. If you believe this may be a factor, please contact the office before the event to ensure the activity is suitable and to avoid any embarassment on the day.

You don't have to attend both days of the weekend, if you would like to attend for just a morning or an afternoon, this would be sufficient.
