What: SCAN One-Offs are a simple concept, for a half or full day volunteers help out in a community based project to get a task done. Often these activities take place on a Wednesday afternoon when students are free and are a great way of dipping in and out of volunteering. Activities last year included tree planting, river clean ups, beach surveys and gardening work.
Why get involved: These projects are appealing to volunteers because:
They don’t require a regular commitment
They’re a great taster for anyone new to volunteering
Often you can just turn up and go
You need no previous experience and equipment is provided
You’ll learn new skills
They’re very sociable and make it easy to meet new people
They provide a chance to visit new places
They’re good fun and you can see the difference made in a few hours.
All transport and equipment is provided.... all you need is enthusiasm
