Funnily enough, absolutely nothing from the broadcast!
When we started, we asked for volunteers and were rather surprised that we ended up with ‘new’ folk who weren’t already heavily involved in other things. We have gradually added to these, occasionally needing help for just one day and then finding them staying on. We do not make general appeals for help as we need to remember the clientele that we serve.
Just to chip in on others, we find the CVS is very important to us, and although we have no political interests at all, we have found it very helpful to build up relationships with individual County and District Councillors, as the connections can be invaluable when raising funds.
