    Time: 5:30-7:30 pm
    Location:The Humanitarian Centre meeting room, c/o Fenner's, Gresham Road, Cambridge, CB1 2ES.

No preparation is necessary beforehand - just come along to share your experiences, hear about others, and ask any questions that you have!

    Three separate sessions will be led by Alison Walsham, Shiraz Vira, and Janice & Anne from The Humanitarian Centre, on Recruiting Volunteers, Taking Volunteers Overseas, and Working With Volunteers in the UK, respectively.

    Please register to attend by Friday 10th May: http://engagingwithvolunteers.eventbrite.com
