Marking a year of volunteering

Have your say

CELEBRATIONS are taking place to mark the first year of a project involving volunteers who lend a hand in their local communities.

RotherFed’s Golden Seven Project scheme will mark the anniversary on Thursday, March 8, at Springwell Gardens Community Centre, Rotherham.

The Golden Seven Project involves volunteers working to help vulnerable groups and make improvements to community spaces.

Steve Ruffle, development manager of RotherFed, which represents tenants’ groups around the borough, said: “This event is a real opportunity to celebrate some of the fantastic work that has been going on in our communities led and put together by volunteers.”
