Celebrating our volunteer heroes

Updated: Jun 3

The Medway Volunteer Fair takes place on 6 June and will say “thank you” to our volunteer heroes at Rochester Baptist Church. It’s part of Volunteers’ Week – an annual celebration of volunteers across the UK. 2024 is the 40th Anniversary of this event and will run from Monday 3rd of May to Sunday 9th June.

Every year there are hundreds of events planned around the country to mark the unique and life changing contributions that volunteers make. MVA is joining in the celebrations and will be hosting an event during the week to thank current volunteers and support the Medway voluntary and faith sector to let anyone who is thinking about volunteering find out more how they could get involved.

The Volunteer Fair is on Thursday 6th June between 11am and 1pm, at Rochester Baptist Church, Crow Lane ME1 1RF (Just off Rochester High Street).

This event has three strands:

We would like to say a big thank you to and celebrate the difference volunteer support makes to local communities. Free refreshments and a little thank you gift for existing  volunteers to take home will be available on the day. 

Medway Volunteer Fair

Volunteering comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes- everything from supporting people with cancer, to things you can do at home on your sofa to fundraising events!  A ‘Volunteer Fair’ is an opportunity for organisations looking for volunteers and people thinking about volunteering to get together to find out more about each other.

Registration is still open for organisations currently recruiting volunteers in Medway. If you or any groups you know are looking for volunteers, do get in touch or fill in this registration form:

Current volunteers or those thinking about volunteering do not need to book and are welcome just to drop in on the day between 11 am and 1 pm.

There are unlimited ways to volunteer time to make a difference. Participating in health research is definitely not all about taking medication! Nor do you need to have a health condition to help. The event will include an opportunity for everyone to find out more about NIHR, speak to health research volunteer champions and local health care staff.
