Thank you Volunteers from DW Sports – free prize draw

As a delayed thank you for Volunteers’ Week we’re giving away 5x day passes to DW Sports in Huddersfield – these are valid until the 30th June. DW kindly donated these prizes to say thank you all the volunteers.

These were meant to be given out at our Charity Village event but due to the weather we were unable to do so.

To enter e-mail helen@vkirklees.org.uk with your name, where you volunteer, phone number and your volunteer manager/supervisors number.
The passes will need to be collected from Volunteering Kirklees at The Edith Key Centre, 8 Upperhead Row, Huddersfield, HD1 2JN.

We will randomly select 5 winners at 12pm tomorrow (25th June) and will contact you should you win.
