CVS and our #MakeGoodThingsHappen campaign are partnering up with the Crewe Town Council led #InCrewe campaign. CVS will be delivering and acting as a focal point the 'volunteer' portion for #InCrewe.
#InCrewe is a campaign highlighting the culture and enjoyment the town has to offer its residents and visitors, and volunteering is a great way to get involved and experience just that.
#MakeGoodThingsHappen volunteer #InCrewe.
Support of our campaign from private and statutory organisations would go along way in raising the number of the vital volunteering support hours in our VCFS community.
If as an employer your organisation has a volunteering scheme, encourage your employees to take up their volunteering hours using our services. There are a host downloadable resources and information further down the page, you can also request a promo pack of materials for use in staff room areas. Members of the CVS team would be available to run a free Introduction to Volunteering session with your staff in support of your scheme.
Even your organisation doesn't have a volunteer scheme, we would still love the opportunity to hold talks, presentations, drop-in sessions within your place of business or your community group. Either formally during an in-house activity or informally during a break period, highlighting the personal benefits of volunteering with the aim of gaining new volunteer registrations on behalf of the community we support.
To support our #MakeGoodThingsHappen campaign in this way, please contact us on 01270 763 100 or email email@example.com.
For businesses, community organisations, education centres, event organisers and public venues who would like to get behind the campaign and help communicate the message that volunteering is a great way to make good things happen for you and the world around you, can order a support pack containing leaflets posters and other materials to display in spaces accessible by staff, customers and members of the public.
Being able to have in place leaflets and posters in public access and busy footfall areas would help create fantastic awareness of our campaign

A very simple way to support the campaign is to spread awareness across Facebook and Twitter. You can do this by sharing or retweeting some of our own CVS social media posts (@CVSCE on Twitter or CVS Cheshire East on Facebook), writing your own posts using the hashtag #MakeGoodThingsHappen.
Current Volunteers and VCFS Organisations
Download the #MakeGoodThingsHappen social media supporters pack and use some of our prepared content and post ideas to share your messages and experiences about volunteering or your organisation's volunteers. We will pick these posts up, retweet, like and share, and use them in other areas of the campaign like our newsletters, presentations and website.
We would like to be able to put in place as many online referral links on partner sites as possible, widening the entry point into volunteering for the Cheshire East community.
We are looking for organisations that host either community centred website or employee facing intranet sites that are willing to support our campaign by linking and listing information about our Volunteer Centre services on among their pages.
Below are a couple of pre-made buttons (you can download) ready to be placed on your site by your web administrator. But we are more than happy to help create something more bespoke or tailored for your website's audience and support this information being put in place.
If you have any questions and would like to back our campaign in this way, with our support, please contact our Marketing Manager Andrew Luisis directly, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01270 763 100.
