"Volunteering In the Borders" Springwood event a huge success!

This successful event was held on 25th September at Springwood Park, Kelso. Over 60 Charities and organisations took part in facilitated discussions on volunteering during the morning. In the afternoon people interested in volunteering came along to meet organisations and charities who welcome their help in many different ways.

The Volunteer Fair was part of a day-long event initiated by the three Borders Lord-Lieutenants with support from Scottish Borders Council and the Borders Third Sector Partnership, made up of Volunteer Centre Borders, The Bridge, Berwickshire Association for Voluntary Service and the Scottish Borders Social Enterprise Chamber.

Here are some photographs of the event and more, including many of the organisations that took part and brought stands along, can be found on Scottish Borders Council's Photostreaming Flickr page here..
