Residents of Coalville who are looking at becoming a volunteer now have the chance to get all the information they need at the Belvoir Shopping Centre.

On Thursday 28 June, Voluntary Action LeicesterShire will be hosting an information stall in the centre. Volunteers are invaluable to the charities across Leicestershire, as many simply couldn’t do their work without this type of generosity. Not only does the organisation gain extra help and support, but volunteers get experience that is great for CVs as well as learning new skills and are able to meet new people. Kathryn Lupton, development and volunteer advisor – North West Leicestershire & Blaby Districts says: “Volunteers are at the heart of organisations, they are the important cogs that keep the machine turning. If you are looking for a new project, something to put on your CV or to meet like minded people, I would love to talk to you and help you find your ideal opportunity”.

Craft-Fayre Friday's 

From the 15th June, Coalville Market will be hosting a "Craft Fayre" within it's Friday market for six weeks.

The Fayre will feature local craft sellers produce, including a large range of imaginative and unique handmade gifts, bags, handcrafted jewellery, cards, cup cakes, painting textiles...
