  • Image result for national volunteering week 2015Following on from the success of National Volunteering Week last year, the team here at Louth Volunteer Centre hosted 2 Volunteer Fairs in Louth to mark the occasion. The first Fair took place on West Street in Drogheda on Saturday 16th May, and the second took place in the Marshes shopping centre on Sunday 17th May. Both were a resounding success, with over 25 local charities and non profit groups taking part to talk to the public about the work that their volunteers are doing, as well as music, face painting and a couple of surprise guests.

    We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone that showed up on the day to help make both days a great hit.
