Kerry People Called Upon To Help Out For Volunteer Week

Posted by



National Volunteering Week is taking place in Kerry this week.

KERRY Volunteer Centre (KVC) are calling upon all locals to consider giving up some of their free time during ‘National Volunteer Week’.

The week takes place from May 11 to May 17 where there will be opportunities and events for everyone to get involved, be it through the many non-profit organisations in your area, helping to clean up your local area with a group of friends or just generally getting involved with the local community in other ways.

It is easy to get involved in NVW, there is no cost to participate and the benefits are many. Kerry Volunteer Centre has lots of supports and ideas available to help you get involved in NVW. To avail of free advice and support contact Paula at Kerry Volunteer Centre on 066 7117966.

Schools, individuals and volunteer organisations are being encouraged to get up and out there and do their own little bit for the community.

Schools can get both their staff and pupils involved through organising a clean up or planting ceremony, it is hoped that this will promote the benefits of volunteering to the pupils.

With the week starting today, Monday May 11, the KVC is a hive of activity, with the centre also set to hold a party of sorts on Wednesday May 13 in the Tralee Bay Wetlands from 11am-12pm as they will look to celebrate the hard work done by the volunteers over the week.

There will information sessions held throughout the county and in Manor West Retail Park here in town during the week:
• Tuesday, May 12th – Údarás na Gaeltachta, Páirc Ghnó an Daingin, Baile an Mhuilinn, An Daingean from 11am-12:30pm.
• Thursday, May 14th – Listowel Supervalu from 12-4pm
• Sunday, May 17th – Manor West Retail Park from 12-4pm.
