Newlife Volunteers Manager Kevin Lowe said: “You can help by volunteering to promote Newlife Foundation locally or to help raise funds to buy equipment such as wheelchairs, frames and specialist beds.
“You can deliver activities in your community or provide support at an organised event and we guarantee that 100% of every penny raised is spent on local children.
“As well as having a great time, you will also gain a range of social, practical and employment skills. You can also add volunteering to your CV and get references from us for future jobs. No experience is necessary.”
Area Manager for Fire Safety, Ian Bitcon said: “When Newlife Foundation approached us asking for help with venues where they could hold recruitment sessions, we were keen to assist.
“Newlife Foundation clearly makes a positive impact on disabled children’s lives across West Yorkshire – anyone who comes to the volunteer recruitment sessions can also take the opportunity to sign up for a free Home Fire Safety Check whilst they are at the station!”
