Rugby voluntary organisations to showcase services and opportunities

Rugby Editorial 27th Oct, 2019   0

A CELEBRATION of Rugby’s community and voluntary organisations takes place next month at the Benn Hall.

Our Rugby, Our Future brings together organisations from the community, voluntary and public sectors, giving residents a chance to find out about support services on offer in the borough and opportunities to volunteer.

The free drop-in event features dozens of stalls showcasing the variety of services from organisations including Warwickshire Police, Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service, Warwickshire Rural Community Council’s community transport service and Warwickshire County Council’s family information service.

This year’s event also celebrates the Coventry and Warwickshire Year of Wellbeing 2019, with a number of health services represented including Coventry and Warwickshire Mind, Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group, Carers Trust and Healthwatch Warwickshire.

The event is organised by Rugby Borough Council (RBC), Warwickshire County Council and Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action (WCAVA).

RBC communities and homes spokeswoman Coun Emma Crane said: “Rugby has a thriving voluntary and community sector which plays a vital role in the borough and supports a wide range of public services.

“Our Rugby, Our Future gives organisations an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas, while giving residents the chance to find out more about the services on offer and opportunities to volunteer.”

Pam Luck, WCAVA’s group development worker, said: “Rugby has a vibrant voluntary and community sector and this event provides a great opportunity to come together to learn about, and promote, the services on offer across the borough.”

Our Rugby, Our Future runs from 9.30am to 12.30pm on on Wednesday November 6. Free refreshments will be available.
