Who’s Supporting You?  New marketing from Hart Volunteer Centre With the help of local student, Hannah Neil and marketing volunteer, Christine Shead our Volunteer Centre will shortly be launching a new marketing drive, targeting our local voluntary groups.

Driven by the success of previous campaigns aimed at recruiting volunteers from different age groups and social / economic backgrounds, the VC team are now turning their attention to ensuring that local groups know what support they can expect to find at our Volunteer Centre;
Entitled  ‘Who’s Supporting You?’ and with an image that we’re hoping will bring a smile to people’s faces the team are looking to ensure that organisations have a ‘keepable’, desktop reminder that the Centre is there to support them in the recruiting and retaining of volunteers plus acting as gateway to other services provided by our CVS team.
Volunteering is always attributed with being fun and therefore the team hope to have encapsulated this within the marketing; ‘if we can bring a smile to someone's face when they open the envelope, we are less likely to end up in the bin and more likely to be pinned next to their PC, a fun reminder that we’re here to help!’

I look forward to working with Hart Voluntary Action who are kindly assisting me in these awards.”  
Cllr Billings will accept nominations until 10th April 2015. Awards will be presented throughout the year during the Full Council meetings on 29th January 2015 and 30th April 2015.
