Twenty-three voluntary and community groups set up stands at the One Community Summer Volunteer and Community Opportunities Fair on a blisteringly hot day – Friday 12 July – in West Street, Fareham. The Fair was to promote voluntary and community activity in the borough of Fareham and to engage with people out and about in the town centre.
Organiser Hayley Hamlett said,
“It’s a great way to meet people who might never have thought about volunteering before, or to let people know about the services and activities that might be useful to them or their family members.”
Colourful stands attracted passers-by, and groups including Trefoil Guild, Scouts, British Legion, Fareham Library, Open Sight, and others supporting disabled people and refugees, were able to speak to those who may not have been aware of them before.
