Riverside Community found itself quite a draw at the recent Volunteer Recruitment Fayre hosted by ngage Thurrock, an organisation that promotes active citizenship and voluntary opportunities.
Just one of a number of organisations offering voluntary work opportunities in Thurrock, RCBL found itself in the middle of fierce competition to snag as many willing volunteers as possible during the three hour event. Rob and Anita, the recruitment team for the event, managed to charm and capture quite a high number of potential volunteers with their friendly and contagious enthusiasm for the project.
In quite a coup for the team, a whole family signed up as potential volunteers within the first hour and the people just kept on coming with ideas and offers of help for future events being planned.
As befits a project that is dedicated to building a strong and cohesive community spirit in the Grays Riverside area, the ethnic mix of the people who signed up to volunteer was fantastically broad and just what is needed to bring about a fully integrated, successful and, most importantly, great community to live in.
