To commemorate the European Year of the Volunteer 2011, the Westport Family and Community Resource Centre has organised a full day event in The Castlecourt Hotel, Westport, on Friday March 11.
Attending this event will be Marian Harkin, Independent MEP, who successfully campaigned for this year to be dedicated to volunteer celebration. She will launch the day, and give advice and support on volunteering, including advice for groups and organisations wishing to attract volunteers.
This day will be an opportunity to both encourage new volunteers and to recognise existing volunteers involved in the various clubs, organisations, and groups in town.
For further information about the event, and to book your place, call into the Westport Family Community Resource Centre, The Fairgreen, Westport, or call John or Eoghan at 098 24419 for details.
