It’s time for a fresh new set of events in need of helping hands! If you plan to compete or are otherwise unobligated for a few hours this weekend, why not check out your local event and lend a hand? There are opportunities aplenty this week – let’s have a look!

We’ve compiled some resources on volunteering with COVID-19 regulations in mind. We’ll reference this list each week in Volunteer Nation, so take a few moments to familiarize yourself with what’s new and different.
