Question and Answer : Volunteersxxx
Q: I was fortunate enough to be invited to the 2005 Oscas ceremony earlier this year. It was a splendid event which I enjoyed immensely. It struck me at the time that there must have been many really good ideas, not only from the award winners, but also from the shortlisted nominees and indeed from many others in attendance. Ideas for recruitment, fund raising, school links etc.... all these surely must have been considered when selecting the final award winners. It would be a great shame if this opportunity to share ideas and success stories with other like minded people went begging. It may take a bit of organising, but why not put a link on your web site to a word doc, or pdf of all the ideas for everyone to access.
