We would like to build on the great community spirit which has brought so many to offer to help the vaccination programme. Over 300 quickly volunteered, and we know from the many messages received how much it means to you and how keen many are to be even more involved in helping our community.
So, we have been thinking about how to build on this ambition and community spirit. To begin with we thought we should try to discover what your ideas are.
How would you like to get involved in the local community, and what would you like to achieve?
What skills could you bring? How could we draw skills and ideas together to make things happen?
Our idea is not necessarily for one large group but perhaps a number of smaller groups, perhaps each dedicated to a particular cause.
What kind of projects would interest you to be involved in? We have listed a few broad areas below, but what have we missed? What could your innovative ideas achieve?
Ideas to help the environment.
We are simply seeking to enable volunteers to achieve their goals of helping in the community, without necessarily any affiliation to a formal organisation. We can help assist in facilitating contacts and setting up groups in much the same way we helped set up the volunteer system which has brought us all together.
If you have the ambition to help your local community or any ideas of the type outlined above, please leave a comment with your name – at the bottom of this page – or email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org
The next step may then be to draw together groups of volunteers with similar interests, perhaps via a Zoom call or similar, to see how any ideas can be evolved and brought to fruition.
