WOLLONGONG City Council’s Volunteering Expo is on again, and this year at least 28 community organisations will be involved.
The expo, coordinated by Council’s Volunteering Illawarra service, is at the Wollongong Town Hall on 17 May from 9.30am-3.30pm.
Stallholders include representatives from Council’s Community Transport and Social Support, St Vincent de Paul and the Arthritis Foundation. This year, the expo will also feature performances from three Illawarra-based volunteering groups, and eight presentations from different organisations.
Wollongong City Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said the expo is an opportunity for people to find a volunteering venture that suits them.
“With a range of organisations in one space, people can find organisations that fit in with their interests, lifestyle and their skill set. And that’s the great thing about volunteering – there are so many different options,” the Lord Mayor said.
The expo’s theme for 2012 is ‘Everyone Counts’. It’s just one of the events being held across the region to mark National Volunteers Week which runs from May 14 to 18.
