M&S and The Exeter YMCA are calling on local people to roll up their sleeves and Spark Something Good in a week of volunteering that will positively impact 24 projects at the heart of the community in Exeter and Plymouth.
On Thursday 8 September, we are calling on volunteers to help us host Devon’s Big Cream Tea for the local community. Through this event, we aim to spread the word about the fantastic work of YMCAs nationwide and the work that we do for young people to help them to achieve their goals.
Along with advice and support, the YMCA provides supported accommodation, opening their doors to young people facing homelessness; Community Job Clubs that help to make young people more employable and a Mentoring Programme for ex-offenders to help them to re-integrate into society. Through spreading the word about what we do, we hope to attract more volunteers so that we can continue to provide our amazing services to young people in Exeter.
If you would like to sign-up for participation in our project or to find out more, visit: www.neighbourly.com/mandsvolunteer or call 0117 915 1279.
Exeter and Plymouth have been selected as two of the first cities in the South West to host M&S Spark Something Good – an initiative that will take place across 24 cities in the UK and Ireland over the course of 24 months and will see 24 projects benefit in each location.
