Kent Coast Volunteering and Soroptimist International Thanet welcome you to an event to celebrate women’s work in the voluntary sector and the potential of women and girls in Thanet.

Interested in volunteering? Pop into the Foyle Rooms and talk to stallholders.

Research shows that being kind makes us happier and what better way to improve our happiness than by incorporating more kindness into our lives by volunteering? Volunteering can be joyful, enabling you to support a cause you believe in, feel part of something bigger than yourself, learn something new and improve social connection, boosting feelings of wellbeing. Or perhaps there’s a service you might benefit from as a Thanet resident? Talk to us to see if we can help.

For stallholders it’s a chance to promote services, volunteering roles and network with visitors and each other. If you are interested in becoming a stallholder, please email to register your interest.
