Volunteer Now has launched Volunteering – Faces and Places, an exhibition which captures the diversity of people from across Northern Ireland involved in a variety of volunteering roles.

The exhibition which forms part of Volunteer Now’s annual Volunteers’ Week celebrations, launched in Coleraine Library and will remain there during June before going to various Libraries across Northern Ireland over the next 12 months.

Seamus Reynolds, who volunteers as a coach with Bann Rowing Club, said, “I was delighted to be part of this exhibition.

“I was a rower myself and progressed into volunteer coaching. It’s a bug you get and it’s nice to see young people getting involved”

Wendy Osborne OBE, Chief Executive, Volunteer Now said, “The idea behind Volunteering – Faces and Places stems from the fact that volunteers are everywhere.

“They are involved in all kinds of activities and help all kinds of people in every community.

“There isn’t a city, town or village in Northern Ireland that doesn’t have volunteers. We hope that this exhibition which features individuals’ stories and captures the fun side of volunteering will inspire others to get involved.”

There are currently over 3000 volunteering opportunities available across Northern Ireland. To find out more visit: www.volunteenow.co.uk or call Volunteer Now’s Community Engagement Officers on 028 9023 2020.
