Student Volunteering Week is taking place next week (20 – 26 February) and the Liverpool Guild of Students are marking the occasion with a number of events and opportunities.
Throughout the week, a number of micro-volunteering opportunities are available. Micro-volunteering is an activity that can be completed within five-minutes that benefits a non-profit or charity. For example, Help the Homeless Society are asking you to drop in and write a message expressing hope and solidarity towards those currently oppressed in the world. Likewise, Marrow Society are asking you to sign onto the stem cell register.
In addition to micro-volunteering, the Guild are hosting a Volunteering Fair on Wednesday, 22 February. Over 45 organisations will be attending the Fair, including: British Heart Foundation, Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, Red Cross, Crisis Skylight Merseyside, Merseyside Offender Mentoring Project, Marie Curie, Claire House and Cancer Research UK. The organisations will be sharing information about what they do and how you can get involved.
