President Colin Dowding welcomes Martin Trinder to the Club

He explained that CVS encourages organisations in the local voluntary, community and social enterprise sector to work together, and in partnership with the public and private sector, to share knowledge and expertise. Based at 43 Bromham Road the building, shared with 6 other voluntary organisations, plays a valuable part in connecting organisations as it brings people together for meeting, training and sharing office space.

Martin explaining the activities of CVS while interested members make notes

Martin’s full presentation provides useful information about the role of CVS and in particular how it might be useful for Rotary to identify and develop partnerships for their own voluntary activities.

In thanking his nephew David Swain said he was delighted to now know actually what he did for a living! He thanked him for the clarity of his presentation and making it relevant to some of the key issues facing Rotary in its support for charitable organisations.
