Volunteers are being sought to take part in this summer’s Tall Ships Regatta.

On Saturday, February 6, from 10am to 1pm, Northumberland CVA will be holding a volunteer recruitment fair at the Blyth Workspace on Quay Road, in partnership with Active Northumberland, Port of Blyth and the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta (organised by Sail Training International).

The Port of Blyth will come alive for a few days at the end of August as some of the largest and most spectacular tall ships in the world will be available to view as they gather for a race across the North Sea.

Anne Kidd, Northumberland CVA’s development officer for volunteering, said: “Volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together.

“It’s a two-way street as there are loads of benefits to doing something for a good cause – you can learn new skills, meet new people, or help your career.

“Volunteering on your CV will help you to stand out from the crowd when it comes to getting a job, a university or college place. Wherever you want to go in life, volunteering can help you get there.”
