Helping out in the community can be rewarding - but getting the right person in the right job is crucial.

That is where the WAM Get Involved team can help.

The organisation - which fits people who want to volunteer with the ideal charities or organisations - has been celebrating National Volunteers Week with community based events across the area.

It was all about putting people somewhere they could do the most good.

On Friday the team visited Nicholsons Shopping Centre in Maidenhead, on Tuesday it was Budgens at Ascot and on Wednesday Windsor Yards at Windsor.

Ramesh Kukar, chief officer, WAM Get Involved said “WAM Get Involved is all about connecting community – people doing what they can, benefitting from some services, helping with others. We Love Volunteers Week events – we always meet so many residents who are keen to get more involved in the community and it’s great to be able to link them up with relevant charities and community groups.”
