Are the corner stone of the charity, we cannot continue with our work without the support of the volunteer. There are many ways in which you can become a volunteer:
VHI Women’s Mini Marathon: Volunteers are needed to help with the smooth running of the day. You can assist on the morning of the event by helping with tea making on the morning. All our ladies gather in the centre before departing by bus to Dublin. We offer drinks, tea and coffee, take huge number of photographs and then we’re off. The centre has to be restored to normal for the next days services, dishwasher loaded and unloaded, and rooms checked.
