July has been 'Trustee Recruitment' month here and we have been focussing on the role of trustees; helping raise the profile of, and recruit more people to, trustee positions for Cornish charities. You can read all about it here.  

Our Minibus went to London this month, taking a group of people from Cornish Charity Activ8 to the London Para-Athletic Games. Here's a great picture of it in the capital...

If you want to book our minibus for a community trip or charitable outing etc, you can find out more - and make your booking - through our web pages.

Following the severe flooding which struck the village of Coverack, we have been supporting the Council and its partners with the recovery effort, sourcing volunteers and working with involving other voluntary sector partners as needed. The response of the community, both locally and from further afield, has been fantastic and just shows what can be achieved when we all pull together!

Our Training Team have been busy delivering the Level 3 Award in Volunteer Management and the Level 3 Award in Education & Training. They are now starting to advertise and recruit for next month's workshops on Fundraising Through Social Media and Volunteers and the Law.

The Transform Ageing Workshops continued through the month and we have a Community Day coming up in Redruth on 11th August where you can come and find out more about Transform Ageing, it's goals and it's progress.

We've also been busy recruiting volunteers for a range of fantastic events and festivals throughout the summer via our Events Volunteering Page  and we are still looking for volunteers for Playfest in Truro on 2nd & 3rd August.

Finally, for now, we are still taking nominations for the 2017 Cornwall Celebrates Volunteering Awards - if you know of a volunteer who deserves recognition for the outstanding contribution they make, why not nominate them for an award? Everything you need to know can be found on our website.

Phew! That's enough for now, we'll catch up again next month. In the meantime, enjoy your summer and happy volunteering :-)
