The success of volunteering in Radcliffe was celebrated on Sunday.

Representatives from around 20 groups in the town came together at Radcliffe Boys and Girls Club on Withins Avenue from 11am to 3pm for the third Radcliffe Volunteers Fair.

Around 300 people attended and were able to learn more about the different organisations, while there were activities for families to enjoy such as nature walking by the canal, facepainting and bike riding.

The annual event is organised by Tina Harrison MBE, who runs Trinity Foodbank Radcliffe, Gill Smith, who heads up Radcliffe Litter Pickers and Andrea Hulme, Incredible Edible Radcliffe’s facilitator.

Gill said: “It is pleasing to see that the event was well attended. It was so popular.

“We are just trying to raise awareness of voluntary groups and how people can get involved.

“We are trying to reach out to people to help. There are things that can be done which don't involve physical work and it can even be just for an hour a week.”

Sharon and Steve Goodman, who run charity Liv’s Trust, organised an afternoon tea while Holly and Charlie Noble were speaking to people about the work Friends of Outwood Park are doing, including clearing paths.

It is hoped that another similar event will take place later this year following the success of the event on Sunday.
