Voluntary groups around Bute will come together to try and attract new people to their organisations at a drop-in event in Rothesay next month.

The ‘Volunteering 4 Bute’ event will be held in the Moat Community Centre in Stuart Street on Monday, April 13 between 10am and 1pm.

Teas, coffees, and soup will be available, and members of the public will be able to meet representatives from many of the organisations who are looking to recruit new volunteers on the island.

Among the organisations already signed up to attend the event are Homestart, Befrienders and Befrienders Highland, all of whom offer training, support and expenses to their volunteers.
