We are thrilled to announce that we received £3,000 from the Dragon’s Den event that took place recently.

Thanks to Rosehill Photography we got some great photographs of the cheque being awarded and of all the Dragons and local organisations who pitched.

The funding will allow us to research local organisations and groups who recruit volunteers in Rawmarsh and get a database together.  Once this is done we will invite groups to nominate volunteers and hold a celebration event to recognise individual’s achievements and to raise the profile of volunteering.  We know this is important as we are lucky enough to have over 40 young and adult volunteers at the centre.  This means children and young people get much more attention and time from adults.  Huge thanks to Susanne who bravely volunteered to go into the Den with Nicola to explain why she volunteers and what she gets out of it.  What a star!

We made it into the Rotherham Advertiser too – link below
