First Volunteer Meeting

posted July 2009

Every hour given and pound raised brings us a step nearer our goal of raising £750,000. Please come to the first meeting for volunteers, to be held on Monday 20th July at 7.30pm in the café at 23 George Square.
Whether you have a fully-formed fundraising proposal or would like to help but are not sure how, this is the meeting for you. Come along to share ideas and help make this project a great success.

Building team (5 people) – achieved to date
