We were delighted that Stockton Volunteers was part of Stockton International Riverside Festival (SIRF) community Carnival again this year, and what a great day it was.

Stockton Volunteers was represented by volunteers from Catalyst, Stockton Baptist Church, Refugee Futures, Stockton High Street Heritage, Globe Heritage, Stockton Striders, The Lighthouse and Stockton Hope Hardwick Community Larder.

Being part of the Carnival was a great opportunity to promote the Stockton Volunteers name and celebrate the amazing contribution volunteers make to our Borough. Artist and Illustrator,  Morwenna Catt did a great job helping us make some beautiful costumes during workshops in the run up to the event, helping us to look our best.

Lucy Owens, Programmes Manager at Catalyst said, ‘Being part of this iconic Stockton event is a real honour for us and a great way for volunteers to have a fun day out, while raising the profile of Stockton Volunteers and hopefully inspiring others. If our presence helps just one more person to visit the Stockton Volunteers website and consider volunteering that would be an amazing outcome’.

Whether you are an individual or company looking to give your time to help others in the Borough or an organisation needing help to recruit volunteers, Lucy and the Team at Catalyst can help. Visit www.stocktonvolunteers.co.uk or contact Lucy at lucy.owens@catalyststockton.org
