We are celebrating Volunteer
Week Award and we would like to the Local Newspapers to get
involved. This unique event celebrates the involvement of volunteers
in community organisations and highlights their achievements. We
are inviting all organisations working with volunteers to come to
The Event Award takes place on Friday 4th June at the Sheraton
Park Hotel in Knightsbridge. These awards will be presented by the
new Mayor of Kensington and followed with canapés and beverages.
We are the central volunteering resource for charities and local
voluntary organisations in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
We are here to support, develop and promote volunteers and local
organisations so that you can deliver your services more effectively.
We can help with volunteer recruitment, volunteer management, developing
policies and procedures as well as answering any questions around
volunteering that you might have.
We work towards supporting volunteers and local organisations through
the following activities
· Brokerage: We match individuals and groups interested
in volunteering with appropriate opportunities in the local community.
· Promotion: We encourage interest and raise awareness of
volunteering in the borough through outreach at local events and
through other marketing and promotion to the general public.
· Training: Through training, conferences and other events
we encourage organisations to involve volunteers in a way that recognises
good practice in managing volunteers.
· Support: We work with local organisations to develop worthwhile
volunteering opportunities in the borough
· Want to volunteer? Whoever you are we have a project to
help you find your ideal placement. Need extra support because of
health needs? Unemployed? 16 -25? Want advice on how best to support
and manage your volunteers? Ex-offender? We have a project to care
for your particular circumstances. Find training, advice and discover
your talents and your confidence.
Our goal is to promote volunteering opportunities that have a positive
impact on volunteers, charities and the community. We think that
getting involved in the community makes people feel better about
themselves and others. We also think that our local charities and
community groups can grow and become stronger through the support
that volunteers provide.

Foundation for the Relief of Disabled Orphans ( F.R.O.D.O.)
started its work in 2006 focusing on ways to get access to medical
treatment for children with disabilities living in institutions.
We devised a series of programmes to deliver this objective.
F.R.O.D.O. Medical programmes identify orphans and abandoned children
with disabilities or life-limiting conditions, then strive to provide
medical treatment in the hope that this will transform their quality
of life, and increase the number of opportunities for them to fulfill
F.R.O.D.O.’s mission is “To transform the quality of
life, provide hope and empower orphans in developing countries who
suffer from disability or life threatening illness".
We work by forming partnerships with charities and medical professionals
on the ground in the countries in which we work to facilitate access
to often life-saving and/or life altering medical treatments.
All too often children in developing countries do not have the
same opportunity as children in the West in accessing medical treatments
which could ultimately save lives or give hope for a better future.
F.R.O.D.O. opens the doors allowing that opportunity to happen.
You can help us to reach out to more vulnerable children who need
urgent medical treatment and care.
Your support will help us to further our work with disabled orphans
and abandoned children in developing countries.
|I am part of a volunteer committee for Cancer Research organising
an event in Battersea, London. The event is called Relay for
Life and involves teams getting together and fundraising.
On the day teams set up a tent overnight and take it in turns to walk
around a track - as a sign that the search for a cure for cancer never
sleeps. There is plenty to do throughout the event with food, entertainment,
freebies and times to celebrate and remember those who have been touched
Last year 150 people took part and we raised £22,000. This
year we would love to do even better. The event takes place on the
weekend of the 13th and 14th September in Battersea Park, starting
around 2.00PM on the Saturday and finishing at 10AM on the Sunday.
Throughout the event there will be bands, comedians and stalls -
giving the whole event a festival feel. If
