Where has Volunteering taken you? That’s the question being asked for the launch of Buckinghamshire’s Volunteer Voices appeal.


Community Impact Bucks (CIB), the region’s Volunteer Centre, are campaigning to change outdated perceptions around volunteering and showcase some of the exciting and life-enhancing opportunities on offer to local people.


Volunteers are being offered the chance to win a professional photo-shoot or promotional video for their charity and become the face of the upcoming Volunteering Bucks  advertising campaign.


Entry requirements are simply to capture, in a single sentence, the amazing journey that volunteering has taken you on.  Stories can be shared on CIB’s Twitter and Facebook pages with the #discovervolunteering and winners will be selected on 1st September 2015.


Buckinghamshire has over 2,300 registered charities offering an array of unique volunteer experiences, ranging from community radio DJ’ing, to puppy training to football coaching.
Sue Hill-Venning is a volunteer at Bucks Search and Rescue, a charity that provides emergency support for missing people ‘Every week brings a different challenge - whether we are wading through rivers for a lost child or scouring the Chilterns for a person with dementia, the buzz when we find them is always awesome. What could be more fulfilling than saving a life?'


CEO of Community Impact Bucks, Nick Phillips believes that volunteering is a win:win opportunity.
‘Many of our volunteers are motivated by a desire to make their own life better, and there’s nothing wrong with that.  Volunteering has been the launch platform for many new careers. Countless life-long friendships have been created and volunteers have enjoyed incredible experiences that would otherwise never have been possible.
