Surrey Charities’ Roadshow at Guildford Cathedral
23rd May 2022
Guildford Cathedral is delighted to be holding an inaugural ‘Surrey Charities Roadshow’ on Thursday 16 June from 11am to 3pm. The roadshow will be opened at 11am by the High Sheriff of Surrey, 2022-23, His Honour Christopher Critchlow DL. The aim of the event is two-fold, the roadshow aims to support charities in Surrey by creating an opportunity to engage with donors, supporters, and the public. Whilst members of the public can come along and find out more about how the charities can support them, either personally or how they could help the charity through volunteering or being a donor.
Without the support and awareness of the communities they serve, charities are unable to survive. The event plans to give the visitor the opportunity to meet charity staff in person and learn more about them, explore volunteering opportunities, understand how charities can help and support people, in addition to learning how they can support the charities.
Louise Musgrove, Head of Events at Guildford Cathedral commented: “We are delighted to be launching the ‘Surrey Charities Roadshow’ at the Cathedral. We have a wide range of charities attending, all of them bring vital services to the local community.
If you have ever considered volunteering, then this would be a fantastic opportunity to come along and find a charity that suits you. Volunteering can have many benefits, it allows people to grow in confidence, brings a sense of achievement, learn new skills, plus an opportunity to meet new people and to feel part of the community.”
Steve Page of Surrey Charities Network will be holding their monthly networking event at the roadshow, Steve commented: “We are pleased to be holding our June networking meeting at the Cathedral’s first roadshow. It is a great opportunity for the community to come and meet a wide range of Surrey based charities.”
Charities attending the event include ‘Age UK Surrey,’ ‘Citizens Advice Guildford and Ash’, ‘Crossroads Care Surrey,’ ‘Satro’, ‘Your Sanctuary’, ‘The Loop – Surrey’, ‘Healthwatch Surrey’, and ‘The Brigitte Trust – Helping people live well beyond diagnosis’ and ‘Care for Guildford’ and ‘The Grange Centre at Bookham’.
