SVW 2016

Student Volunteering Week 

Unfortunately we did not host anything for 2017 but keep an eye out for our plans for 2018's Volunteering Week and how you will be able to get involved. 

Here is what we did in 2016: 

Micro-volunteering Monday "Make someone's day"

Make someone's day by completing a Random Act of Kindness. Volunteers  handed out card suggestions during the day. 

Send a thankyou card! Send a message to someone amazing and make their day - a friend, a lecturer, a family member?

Nature Tuesday "Help support Worcestershire's wildlife"

16 Students joined Worcestershire Wildlife Trust to develop a glade through coppicing and scrub clearance - a fire was used to burn what was cut.




Animal Welfare Wednesday "Care for rehomed animals"

Students that joined this project at Worcestershire Animal Rescue Shelter saw how rehomed animals are cared for, and how they can help abandoned animals - walk dogs, socialise with cats and see what other opportunities volunteers can get involved with. 





Community Thursday "A little help goes a long way"

Worcester Arts Workshop is a venue that allows anyone from any background to get involved with the arts - students helped them to clear out a space and paint to make sure the venue can carry on its great charitable work. 



Feedback Friday "Tell us your thoughts"

Here are what people had to say about the week:

  • 'It allowed me to try out new and eciting activites'
