Volunteering in Tamworth, April 2024

Hello and happy April, Spring is here at last and with any luck we’ll be getting less rainy days in the near future, if only so I don’t have to keep cleaning up after muddy dog paws. But I’ll stop there before I go onto a longer rant about the weather, we’re here to talk Volunteering!! There are still plenty of opportunities to find in Tamworth, so let’s go through a short list of roles!

Tamworth Street Angels

The Street Angels are still seeking more Volunteers to help them out on Friday and Saturday nights around town, they do not expect you to help them every Friday and Saturday night of course! Even if you can only help out once a month, that’s fine and they would appreciate the extra help.
They also are looking for Festival Angels to help them at an event! Click the links below to find out more.
