Within Bethersden village there are lots of opportunities to get out and about and volunteer for your community. Volunteering just a couple of hours a week can have a host of benefits including:
- Make a difference and be part of a community
- Help you meet different kinds of people and make new friends.
- Learn new skills
- Have fun!
You can volunteer for a local charity cause or through membership of a club or society. There is plenty to choose from, and below is a sample of the opportunities we have available in our community:
Sports and Societies
