Volunteer Centre Dacorum hosted its Music Extravaganza at Adeyfield Community Centre last night.

The special event was to raise funds for Volunteer Centre Dacorum, transforming lives and building communities through volunteering.

An evening of music saw the renowned Village Jazz www.villagejazz.co.uk joined by a fantastic range of pop, jazz and country singers including Rebecca Madden www.facebook.com/rebeccamaddenmusic, Janice Carol www.janicecarol.com, Lesley Thomas and guitarist Ade Goodsall providing a music extravaganza for all tastes.

The performers all generously donated their time and skills to raise funds for Volunteer Centre Dacorum. Our charity supports more than 470 other local groups to find the volunteers they need to keep vital services running. During the last decade we helped over 10,700 people of all ages, abilities and walks of life to become volunteers.

HSBC Community Day

More than 20 staff from HSBC’s Learning Team came together recently for a Hemel based community day.

The team spent the afternoon putting their decorating skills to good use for four lucky good causes.

Teams of willing volunteers started to descend upon community centres in Chaulden and Bennetts End as well as Community Action Decorum’s premises in the High Street and Abbeyfield’s Garrad House in Kings Langley at around midday.

By 6pm, they had completed the makeover of tired looking reception and lobby, gloomy staircases, corridors and a lounge and transformed them all into bright and attractive areas.
