Pembrokeshire’s first volunteering fair a great success
National Volunteers' Week was celebrated in style in June 2019, with a brand new event, organised by PAVS and supported by South Hook LNG, as part of our ongoing commitment to local community projects.
The Fair was a great success. Over 30 Pembrokeshire voluntary organisations hosted stands along Haverfordwest’s Riverside Shopping area, attracting a footfall of nearly 500 people. Visitors chatted with the community groups and organisations, seeking information about how they might be able to get involved with volunteering.
The occasion was also a great opportunity for PAVS to present a number of young people with VIP certificates (Volunteers in Pembrokeshire), a reward scheme for under 25s, recently launched by PAVS. The scheme recognises volunteer hours achieved by groups and individuals, across a variety of activities.
