The Love Hearts
As part of our Hearts and minds project which is funded by the British Heart Foundation, we are looking for people to join our new team of volunteers called The Love Hearts.
As a ‘Love Heart’ you will work with the project staff to develop and organise the programme for the Hearts and minds project, this will include:
Enjoyable classes for people who want to get back into or increase their level of physical activity.
Promoting and being a dinner guest at our Caribbean cookery demonstrations and dining events.
Visiting community centres and spaces, events, barbers, hairdressers, shops and business to give away Caribbean recipes and resources to the community
Representing the BHF and the African Caribbean Health Network at Nottingham’s Caribbean Carnival and the Hearts and Minds community conference
Be part of our film crew – on the screen or behind the scenes
Help to organise and promote training opportunities for local people
Do you want to be a ‘Love Heart?’
If so we need people over the age of 18 who are able to volunteer their time in Nottingham. This year the Love Hearts will be working closely with the African-Caribbean community so we are looking for volunteers who are comfortable with working with this community.
Enthusiasm, reliability and a willingness to have a great time volunteering are the only other requirements. You will develop lots of useful skills and experience on the project as well as training in community research and reporting, training in the BHF Healthy hearty Hearts Kit, Training in emergency life support, assistance to access course of your choice, opportunities to influence local and national agendas, a British Heart foundation goody bag and a Bright Ideas Goody Bag which will be topped up every month you volunteer and much more.
For more information about becoming a Love Heart, please contact Lorna at Bright Ideas. She will arrange for the Love Hearts coordinator – Christine, to get in touch with you.
