Volunteers needed for really cool Recycled Playground project!

Sheffield NOW! (you can read about the organisation in previous posts) has just got funding through for a very exciting project that I’m going to be working on called ‘The Recycled Playground’.  We’ll be doing a series of fun, free workshops to explore parks in Sheffield and build structures out of recycled stuff that respond to specific spaces and what young people want to do/feel there. The project starts in April…

If you are interested in volunteering or you know of some good places to get recycled stuff (bottles, bags, fabric, wood etc)  get in touch with either lisa (lisaprocter@sheffield-now.com) or me – my Sheffield NOW! email is nickyward@sheffield-now.com.

    Hi there

    Have you registered your volunteering opportunities with Sheffield Volunteer Centre? They can advertise for you online (on http://www.do-it.org) and through the Volunteering Advisers. Give them a call on 0114 253 6649 / 0114 2536648 or drop them an email at vc@vas.org.uk.

    They’ll be launching their own new website in a couple of weeks, but in the meantime you can see a little bit about their service by going to http://www.vas.org.uk/volunteering.

    I just tried to email Lisa Proctor and got an email back saying the message had failed permanently. Just so you know.
