Warrington’s First Volunteer Festival

The free drop-in event will take place on Thursday 27th April at the Pyramid on Palmyra Square from 4pm-8pm.

The event will be hosted by Warrington Voluntary Action in association with Warrington Borough Council. Livewire and Culture Warrington.

A variety of local organisations will be showcasing a range of options available including: sports and leisure, community and health, arts and culture, animals and the environment and more.

Alison Cullen, Chief Executive at Warrington Voluntary Action, said: “Volunteering can make a big difference in your local community. If you want to make a positive change but don’t know where to start, this event is for you.”

Graham Cheers, volunteer for Warrington’s junior parkrun, said: “I would never have classed myself as a confident person before but now I feel that my confidence has grown.

He continued: “I have become more known within my community and really enjoy getting involved in projects to help children get more active.”
