The Dirty Weekenders have resurrected!
Since 2015 the DW have kind of fallen into oblivion. This year we are back with new opportunities for students to volunteer while not feeling pressured to cut down on their studies or social life.
The Dirty Weekenders exist to be the link between multiple organisations (charities, Aberdeen Council, etc) and students, so that you know where volunteers are needed at all times. We'll inform you of different volunteering opportunities and then its up to you to decide if you want to help and just sign up!
With your membership fee you'll be provided with a t-shirt with our wonderful name. We'll also try and provide you with the safety equipment needed for different types of volunteering and hopefully cover some of the travel costs to the diverse volunteering placements.
Our current regular volunteering is on Fridays at the botanical gardens. We are also planning on re-establish our old contacts with Halfpenny Farm Animal Sanctuary to have regular visits as well as. In addition to that we get asked to help out with individual charity events including in the past Halloween/Santa runs and even volunteering at a charity ball.
Keep in mind that volunteering looks great on your CV and you can count the hours for Saltire!
Whether you like getting your hands 'dirty' or if you like a more formal volunteering this is the society for you.
