Celebrating 19 years of success
Thanks to all those who joined us at our AGM on 7 November at Lyndhurst Community Centre.
Lorraine Lambert highlights the various ways the Volunteer Centre brings together both local charities and potential volunteers from across the Forest to form long-lasting partnerships.

It was a great opportunity for members to network.
