Join Volunteer Centre Dacorum’s Microvolunteering Competition

The 15th of April was Microvolunteering day. To celebrate this event, which is now in its third successful year, the volunteer centre took part in a number of initiatives. Microvolunteering day is a unique opportunity for different microvolunteering platforms, volunteer involved organisations and individuals to join together in a synchronised effort to demonstrate the empowering potential of the microvolunteering concept. It aims to engage individuals in microvolunteering tasks and inspire them and organisations on embracing the idea. You can participate in microvolunteering throughout the year.

We launched a competition to see who could donate the most grains of rice via the FreeRice game. FreeRice is a word game where for each answer that you get correct, 10 grains of rice will be donated through the World Food Programme to help end hunger. Freerice is a website committed to the cause of ending hunger around the world. It is run entirely for free and at no profit. All money (100%) raised by the site goes to the UN World Food Programme to help feed the hungry. They have already raised enough rice to feed millions of people, but with your help imagine what could be achieved if we all took time to “rice up” against hunger?

There’s many other ways that you can get involved in microvolunteering, for example, our knitters have made a huge contribution to microvolunteering by knitting up many items which will be donated to charity and our chair of trustees Derek Peverill donated one item a day throughout March to different charities.

Get Set Go Dacorum

Get Set Go DacorumGet set, go Dacorum’ is the largest Lottery funded, Sport England project in Dacorum. The project offers fun and sociable exercise to local people in their neighbourhoods at an affordable cost.The project’s aim is to increase the number of 14+ age group taking part in sport activities in the Dacorum area.

We’re looking for positive, outgoing volunteers who are keen to support and motivate others. If you have a passion for helping others and would like to get fit in the process then this opportunity is the one for you. The volunteers will have a variety of skills between them and the roles they will be involved in range from ‘hands on’ involvement in the groups and activities taking place, to ‘behind the scenes’ support including publicity and marketing, social media etc.

An important part of the project is to develop a network of sports volunteers to support people taking part and to develop a network of ‘buddies’ so as many people as possible can access the project and will be able to take part in their chosen activities.
