Aldingbourne Trust Partakes In Volunteers Week

Aldingbourne Trust, a local charity supporting adults with learning disabilities and / or autism, are taking part in national Volunteers’ week from the 1st to 7th June.

We are very fortunate to have over 201 volunteers throughout all our enterprises within the Trust. From volunteers at Number 73 Aldwick Road, in our charity shop and part of the Adopt a Station project and the Aldingbourne Country Centre. Every single volunteer makes a real difference to the people we support.

On Monday 3rdJune we will be hosting a drop in session at the Aldingbourne Country Centre, from 10am until 12noon. Then in the afternoon from 2-4pm there will be a second drop in session at No.73, Aldwick Road, Bognor Regis. This is an opportunity to find out more about the Trust, and how you can support us.

Volunteering for the Trust is a truly rewarding experience as well as a fantastic way to learn new skills, meet new people and get involved in your local community. We have a variety of volunteering opportunities across all of our projects, so we are sure to have something to suit everyone. So, why not come along to one of the drop in sessions to find out more about volunteering with us. We couldn’t do it without you.

We also have regular support from many corporate volunteers from organisations including: Southern Water, Mercers, and The Kitchen Store. They have helped us by clearing our greenhouses, painting and decorating our new children’s tractor play area, and general maintenance tasks around the country centre, which has helped us save over 1352 hours per week.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or have an organisation that would like to “give a day to charity” please contact Tracy Milward at tracym@aldingbourne.org.
