Ambassadors Needed

Volunteer Ambassadors needed!
Could you make a real difference to the lives of local families with young children by using your skills to raise the profile of Home-Start Meon Valley in your local area?
We need people in the Southern Parishes of Winchester – we work throughout the Meon Valley including Meonstoke and Corhampton, Hambledon, Droxford, Exton, Durley, Curdridge, Knowle and Hedge End- who would enjoy networking and participating in information and promotion opportunities, fundraising events, meeting new people and spreading the word about the valuable work that we do!
The Volunteer Community Ambassador role would require a commitment of around 2-4 hours per month, is totally flexible around your life and is a great opportunity to meet new people, develop new skills and get more involved in your local community. If you have a few hours to spare and would like to get involved with our great service, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
To find out more about us please see our website: www.homestart-meonvalley.org.uk or call or email the Home-Start Meon Valley office: 01329 835936 Email: organiser@homestart-meonvalley.org.uk

CAMEO (Come and Meet Everyone)

Don’t forget our first ‘Come and Meet Everyone’ coffee morning will take place on Thursday 10th August 10 am -12 pm at The Wickham Centre.

Mark it in your diary and try and join us.

These sessions will provide a great opportunity for staff and volunteers to catch up informally to share ideas, talk through future plans and socialise with each other! They will be held regularly on a monthly basis with the day changing every time in order to enable as many people as possible to join us.

These CAMEO sessions will be very informal and will operate on a ‘drop in’ basis so there is no need to book.
