Gearing Up For Student Volunteering Week

Student Volunteering Week (SVW) celebrates its 21st anniversary this year. This annual event first burst onto the scene in 2001 and since then, students across the UK have given up their spare time to help others and have made a valuable contribution to their communities and to society in general.

This year, SVW will be taking place from 7 – 13 February and in Coventry, we will be hosting our own series of events including the Volunteering Fair on 11 February.

City Host Case Study

Student Asha first gained insight into the world of volunteering when she volunteered at Birmingham Children’s Hospital for 6 months. After thoroughly enjoying that experience, Asha applied to become a City Host whilst studying at Coventry University. Here, she shares her experience with us.

Get the most out of volunteering

Coventry University and the Students’ Union have been offering volunteering opportunities in the local community for many years, and there are always hundreds of projects for you to get involved in.

Over the past 18 months, a majority of these have been online, but as we start to get back to normal, the number of things you can volunteer for are either back on campus or in the community.

The MOBO Awards was held on Sunday 5th December at the CBS Arena. It was an epic night of live performances and appearances from various favourite artists and media stars.

Spooky theme for Post Pals Volunteering Event

With Halloween just around the corner, it was apt that the Post Pals event held on campus recently was dominated by ghouls, ghosts and things that go bump in the night!
