Why not check out your local Guide Association.  Volunteers will gain experience working with children and young people.  Training is often available and its good fun while providing a worthwhile service.  Meet new people and make new friends.

Lend Young People Hand This Winter
Winter is coming and many young peoples groups are looking for help over the winter months.  From uniformed groups to youth groups they all need help in supervising activities.  so if you can spare a few hours a week get in touch with any one of the many groups in your area.

Youth groups are always needing volunteers.  If you have any spare time contact one near you.  See our Community Pages for a list of contacts
Wick Town Events Committee
The Wick Town Events group are looking for volunteers to assist them in getting events organised.  Its real practical stuff - erecting the stage in the town square and putting up the PA system.  As more vents are planned for this year it is a necessary job and the committee is working on the usual shoestring.
It would not take too ling setting up and later clearing it away again at either end of the event.  If there were more than a few people a rota could be set up.
If you would like to help (don't be shy) contact the Wick Project office in the High Street.
People are needed on the Saturday usually about 9.30am and later in the day when events are on.
So if you are interested in working in a team doing something for Wick and the area then get in touch.
