Groups meet to share ideas

Have your say

VOLUNTEER groups in the Barnsley area were coming together today at a special event.

Voluntary Action Barnsley was behind the day, which is designed to give voluntary organisations from around the borough a chance to talk to private sector representatives.

The event was taking place at The Core in County Way, Barnsley.

It aims to provide both sectors with an opportunity to meet with different groups and learn how they can support each other by concentrating on things such as employer-supported volunteering, to find out how they can obtain cheaper utilities and also learn about corporate social responsibility.

The drop-in event was due to be run from 9.30am until 2pm.
