Washburn Valley community support group needs helpers to spread word
9:43am Friday 11th October 2013 in News
An organisation whose aim is to support businesses and community organisations in the Washburn Valley is seeking to boost its number of volunteers.
Nidderdale Plus is looking for individuals of all ages to help deliver its services, in addition to promoting the area.
Last month saw the team launching its “We Love Nidderdale” social media campaign at the Nidderdale Show, which has been created by Katherine Simpson.
Katherine, a 21-year-old university undergraduate from Darley, came up with the idea – where residents and visitors are asked to photograph a “We Love Nidderdale” sign along-side their favourite Nidderdale view, place, product or person – as a way of engaging with a younger audience.
Nidderdale Plus manager Katy Penn said: “We are always seeking volunteers to help us develop our services and to ensure our Pateley Bridge office remains open five days a week.
“Volunteers get the opportunity to use their skills by giving practical help, as well as influencing our activities.“ For more details, call (01423) 714953.
