Wandsworth Gets Active!
Last Saturday (9 July) was Get Active Day in Wandworth. This was the first day in a festival that lasts until 24 July. As the name suggests, it is the start of a two week festival designed to help people get active in sports and the community.
There were a host of different organisations involved representing activities such as: tennis, football and yoga. Of course, Volunteering Wandsworth also had a pitch to help promote the service.
After a rather blustery start (and many flying leaflets!) when attempting to set-up the gazebo and displays, the event was in full swing and the shows on stage provided a great focus, featuring talks from top British athletes, Taekwondo and Boxing demonstrations as well as a Parkour (Free Running) showcase.
Meanwhile at the Volunteering Wandsworth pitch, we had many people approach us to discuss the possibility of volunteering or involving volunteers in their organisation, with a large proportion also registering on the spot. So, thank you to everyone who visited us. We hope that we can help you "get active" with volunteering opportunites very soon.
