• Since June, we’ve received almost 200 hours in voluntary help and 20 new people have supported The Old Library project through activities such as clearing The Old Library grounds, recording graffiti on the back of the building & promoting the project at various events.
• We also have five trustees who help to look after Lister Steps all year round, with two more applicant trustees in the pipeline. Two of our trustees have been with Lister Steps since the very start and have given so much in terms of their expertise and undying commitment.
• One of our childcare volunteers, Victoria, has been with us for 17 years and was presented with an award last year to celebrate her amazing commitment and work ethic. We’re proud to welcome volunteers with all abilities and partner with North West Community services to allow adults with additional needs opportunities to gain valuable work experience.
• With our volunteers’ help, we’ve reached almost 500 people through our project events & activities throughout 2018.
Construction work is due to start early next year and we’re looking forward to welcoming new faces to our volunteer team, helping us to reach more people in our local community and spreading the word about how everyone can get involved with The Old Library project.
If you’re looking for a new challenge in 2019 or want to meet new people and learn new skills, keep an eye on our volunteering page for opportunities throughout the year!
