How to get the most out of the Volunteering Fair

Hi everyone,

It’s that time of year again- the Volunteering Fair, where all the many different volunteering opportunities that exist for students gather in the Panorama Room so that people can find out more about what’s on offer, and sign up for different projects.

Make a difference, your way! (Exec, part 2)

We have done this in two parts, this week and last week. This week, Yuan (Vice President), Karolina (Project Leader Support Officer) and Lucy (Media and Comms Officer) will reflect on their experiences.
