Reigate & Banstead Voluntary Service E-Bulletin August 2011

E-Bulletin 26th August 2011
Issue no. 2011-20

Welcome to this E-News published by Reigate & Banstead Voluntary Service.
Also attached is our AugustFunding Bulletin.

Voluntary Sector Forum: Older People
Thursday 6th October, Reigate Town Hall, Castlefield Road, Reigate
Please note the date for the forum in Thursday 6th October and not the 14th October as previously published.
Our quarterly Forum will this time be focused on the needs of older people and those organisations who provide care and support for them. Special guests will be invited to lead on this area, but all are welcome to listen, put forward their views and experiences and debate issues raised. Further information and an invitation will follow in September, but if you have any queries or would like to contribute specifically to the discussion/raise an issue, please contact Carol.

Youth For Charity
A new initiative to encourage year 10 & 11 students in schools across Surrey to support local charities has been launched. Students will be asked to recommend charities for awards from a total fund of £20K, to fund anything from a new mini bus to help with medical care and so on. For more information or to add your charity to the list, go to:

Office Space Urgently Needed
First Steps urgently require office space for 3 members of staff within the Redhill/Reigate/Horley area.
1 member of staff is currently working a full time week, the other 2 work part time.  They are currently located in Woking and it is becoming increasingly impractical for staff (who cover the South East of the county) to carry out their roles effectively. They are willing to pay rent for desk space and a little storage, so please get in touch with us if you can help and we will pass on your offers.  Thank you!

Volunteer Projects Urgently Needed!
We have two teams of volunteers looking to support a project for a day in late September/October, preferably on an indoor project, such as DIY/decoration. If you have something these volunteers can help with, please contact the Volunteer Centre on 01737 762 115 or e-mail .

If you have anything you’d like advertised in our monthly Newsletter or weekly E-News, please contact Carol at or call 01737 763 156.
