We still get to keep Charlotte Drake, who is the new Ramsey Organiser, so it's a win/win for both offices!

Thanks to all the volunteers for welcoming new staff and helping them to settle in to their new jobs.

Anyone can volunteer but they need to be able to make a commitment. Many organisations can be flexible about when and for how many hours you volunteer however they all need you to be there when you say you will.

We have four volunteer centres in Huntingdonshire Huntingdon, St Neots, St Ives and Ramsey. We are also linked with the many other Volunteer Centres throughout the country.

Volunteering is good for you - it is proven to boost your self esteem, confidence and sense of pride; you can learn new skills and and/ or use your existing talents to good use; it looks good on your CV and can help build new friendships and local communities.

Another important element of the work that we do is running community car schemes from each of our local offices.
