Spinning for Volunteers

Volunteering is a way of life across the Upper Clutha. Many people across our community contribute through giving their time to activities which make our community strong – culture & arts, sports & recreation, spiritual, the natural environment and others who just need a helping hand.

Volunteer South is a local agency which works to connect people and the community through volunteering.

Earlier this year the MenShed team completed a spinning wheel to be used by Volunteer South as part of a promotional campaign to attract people who wish to volunteer and link them to opportunities which may interest them.

The project was a great success and as a result this week the MenShed Team completed six more spinning wheels for Volunteer Agencies across the nation. Some are heading to Auckland, others to the Bay of Plenty and Canterbury.

The Wanaka Community Workshop is proud to be associated with Volunteer South and are delighted the project has now gone national. Great outcome.
