{ Noticeboard }

Throughout 2010, the SE1 community is being invited to
support the work of international development charity VSO.
Between May and July, Southwark will host a team of
twenty-four motivated young volunteers aged between 18-25,
from Yemen, Morocco, Egypt, Netherlands, Bosnia and the UK. 

Working together to complete over 6,000 hours of voluntary
work and help the local community, the team from Global
Xchange will have spent three months volunteering in Egypt
before their arrival south of the river.  

The joint partnership between VSO and the British Council
gives young people the opportunity to really make a
difference in a developing country as well as a UK
community. This will be the third year the youth
volunteering scheme has visited Southwark.

Southwark Programme Supervisor Georgina Richards is urgently
looking for host homes for the volunteers during their stay:

"If you have a spare room and would like to be part of this
exciting international experience, please do get in touch.
We ensure the experience is as hassle free as possible and
we help by offering a financial contribution of 100 per
week towards food costs of housing a pair of volunteers."

Contact Georgina Richards: 07785 741395,
