Volunteering - Weekly sessions & large scale events
The Wigan VIP website offer volunteers an increasingly wide range of weekly sessions to get involved with. With local sports clubs now getting on board the quantity and range of weekly opportunities available are increasing all the time.
The site also offers volunteers the opportunity to get involved in larger scale events such as the recent Haigh Mountain Bike Challenge and the forthcoming Greater Manchester Disability Games and Wigan 10K events. The nature of these events means they do not occur on a weekly or event monthly basis so volunteers who choose only to volunteer on larger events may have significant gaps in their volunteering. This is not a problem as it is completely down to the volunteer how and when they volunteer. However, we encourage our volunteers to volunteer as often and as much as possible in order to maximise the benefits.
We now have weekly sessions covering community, disability and adult specific activities so why not get involved while you are waiting for the next big event to come around?
