QUARTERLY VOLUNTEER RAFFLE
At the end of every quarter (31st March, 30th June, 30th September and 31st December) there’ll be a raffle here in Fingal Volunteer Centre. To get your raffle ticket (or better to get your name in the raffle box…) you simply need to record your effective volunteer hours in 2019.
There are various ways to record your hours:
If your name is selected you’ll be then contacted by myself or a colleague of mine to confirm your address (we post the voucher directly to your place).
Trying to be fair towards everybody, each given volunteer can win the raffle only once per year.
Sharing your volunteer hours allow us to keep up to date records and data on volunteering in our wide, friendly and altruistic region.
Next Deadline is 31st December 2019.
