Last week, Community Action Norfolk hosted a volunteering marketplace event in King's Lynn with the support of the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk.

The event took place at Alive Lynnsport, in King's Lynn on Thursday the 14th July. We were joined by over 20 different charity organisations who each do amazing work within the West Norfolk area. The organisations who had stalls at the event included; 

West Norfolk Community Transport, Pandora Project, Purfleet Trust, Vision Norfolk, One-to-One Project, West Norfolk Befriending, Good Neighbour Schemes Network, King's Lynn Samaritans, Tapping House (The Norfolk Hospice), YMCA - SOS Bus, Matthew Project, Healthwatch, Norfolk and Waveney Mind, Stroke Association, Motor Neurone Disease Association, The Magpie Centre - West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled Association, Volunteering Matters - Match & Mentor Project, Lily, Norfolk Citizen's Advice, Priory Rotary Club King's Lynn, Change Grow Live (CGL), Big C and Voluntary Norfolk.

We were also thrilled to be joined by North West Norfolk MP James Wild, who spent a considerable amount of the afternoon talking to charities in his constituency. In an article published on James's website here, James makes the following comment about the event:

"There are so many brilliant voluntary organisations making a difference to the lives of people across North West Norfolk. This was an important showcase for the opportunities there are for more people to step up and help in their local community. Volunteering is not only rewarding, but it can help with career progression and I encourage people to look at how they can get involved.”

We would like to thank James for his time, and to see such enthusiasim for the charities and volunteering opportunities in West Norfolk brilliant. We hope that we can work with the Borough Council to hold more events like this in the future.
