The Galway Volunteer Fair takes place this Sunday from 2pm to 5pm in the Clybaun Hotel, Knocknacarra, where organisations and charities will provide information on their work and how people can get involved.
More than 30 groups, including the St Vincent De Paul, the Samaritans, Knocknacarra FC, the Irish Guide Dogs, Tidy Towns, and Serve The City will be present at the event.
Labour city councillor Niall McNelis is encouraging the public to attend the fair. “There is a saying, ‘I always wondered why someone didn’t do something about that, and then I realised I am somebody’. Now is the opportunity to get involved in community,” he said. “This is an ideal opportunity to find out about volunteering and getting involved in the community.”
Cllr McNelis said he hopes the volunteer fair becomes a yearly event. Admission to Sunday’s fair is free and all are welcome. See www.volunteergalway.ie
