Due to unforeseen circumstances, Volfest will be postponed until next year.

VolFest 2020 brought to you by Volunteering Bay of Plenty, is the region’s newest and largest family event aimed at celebrating volunteers and offering opportunities to anyone in the community who wants to get involved.

Volfest 2020 is more than just a festival – it is an opportunity for organisations who engage with volunteers to increase organisation awareness, reach a targeted audience and showcase what you do. We’re excited to let you know that bookings for stallholders are now open.

When: Saturday, 14th April 2020
Time: 10am – 3pm
Location: Historic Village, Tauranga

Visitors have free entry. Food vans, music, competitions, and entertainment throughout the day.

STALLHOLDERS:
Registering your a 2 x 2.4m stall and table (cost $200), gives you priority entry to our free two-hour workshop being held on 26th September which will give you some ideas of the why and how of exhibiting.

If you need to fundraise for the registration fee, think about perhaps holding a bake sale, raffle, morning tea, garage sale or the sale of products before or during the event.

BOOK TODAY to secure your spot at Volfest and showcase your organisation in a vibrant, fun environment.

The Sallies are looking for people to visit an older person who may be lonely and socially isolated, either weekly or fortnightly for approximately one hour.
The older person may like you to take them on an outing occasionally, or perhaps a walk but most of them are happy to sit and have a cup of tea and a chat.

If you like to chat with interesting folk and also have the patience to listen, this is the role for you!
You will need to be over 18 years of age and see this as a longer term commitment.
