BBC Radio Lancashire gives more

BBC Radio Lancashire is teaming up with The Community Channel for a series of programmes and events aimed at getting more people to become volunteers during 2007. Events will take place across Lancashire, and on-air via the radio, internet and television.

Inspirational tales of extraordinary volunteers from charities such as Mencap, St John's Ambulance, Scope, Samaritans, Attend, WRVS, Age Concern, The National
Trust and CEMVO will be featured in a bid to motivate those considering doing something new in the new year.

The campaign is part of the Give More, Get More program especially targetting people with no formal qualifications, people with disabilities and those from ethnic minorities to be aware of, inspired, encouraged and realise the benefits of volunteer opportunities in their community.

Ed Miliband MP, Minister for the Third Sector, said:

“Over half of all adults in England and Wales volunteer on a monthly basis, but too many of the most vulnerable members of our society are missing out on the benefits volunteering can bring — to build skills, qualifications, and self-confidence.

“Volunteering is an extremely powerful way to help people rise to the challenges they face on a daily basis, and enables them to use their experiences to empower others.”
