Nottingham Trent Volunteering and NTSU are celebrating a whole week of volunteering, from Monday 19 – Sunday 25 February, as part of Student Volunteering Week (SVW).

There will be events and activities to inspire you to give volunteering a try. Taking part in just one event will demonstrate the opportunities that volunteering provides, and may lead you to volunteer on a long-term basis. Plus, you'll have the satisfaction of giving something back to the local community.

Take part in a wide range of one-off volunteering opportunities at local organisations and events:

  • The Festival of Science and Curiosity 
  • Woodland Tree Planting at Brackenhurst Campus
  • Light Night 2018
  • Clifton Park Run
  • Rainbow Horse Learning Centre
  • Nottingham Health and Education Support
  • The Arboretum in Nottingham’s City Centre

Plus, many more.

If you'd like to talk to the Nottingham Trent Volunteering team or the NTSU team about how to get involved, they’ll be popping up on all campuses during the week:

  • Boots Library, City Campus, Monday 19 February, 10 am - 2 pm (the team will be joined by SOVA, a charity that runs mentoring for young people in Nottinghamshire)
  • Clifton Library, Clifton Campus, Tuesday 20 February, 10 am – 2 pm
  • Bramley building, Brackenhurst Campus, Thursday 22 February, 10 am -  4 pm

To find out more and book yourself onto one of the opportunities on offer, visit Futurehub.
