Coventry needs YOU!

YOU have the chance to help showcase your city as a Coventry Ambassador volunteer. ENV (Coventry), the community interest company that manages the Coventry Ambassador volunteer programme, is hoping to recruit 50 new volunteers over a 12-month period following its summer events.

ENV is especially looking for recruits that reflect what a rich diversity there is in the city's population.

With Coventry being European City of Sport next year and UK City of Culture in 2021, ENV is aiming to grow and sustain the volunteer legacy programme.

ENV patron and former Olympian David Moorcroft MBE said: "One of the many successes of the London Olympics was the impact of the local volunteers who helped to make it happen.

"To have created a real volunteer legacy from that success is a fantastic achievement and, as a patron of ENV, I am delighted to continue to give my support to the Coventry Ambassador volunteer programme.

"Coventry Ambassasors continues to capture the immense pride shown by local people giving them the opportunity to showcase the very best of what their area has to offer through a variety of event experiences - and those experiences are only set to become more exciting in Coventry as European City of Sport 2019 and UK City of Culture 2021."

ENV has been boosted with small grants from the Big Lottery Fund and the Heart of England Community Foundation to help reach and recruit new volunteers for the award-winning Coventry Ambassadors. The funding will also help create and deliver new and additional training to up-skill, increase confidence and the leadership skills of all its existing volunteers.
