We have plenty of volunteering opportunities whether you’re thinking about volunteering for the first time, are a pupil working toward a community award for volunteering, or simply looking for new experiences.

Whatever your reasons for volunteering, we’re always incredibly grateful to all our volunteers who play a major part in the success of our events across Flintshire and Wrexham.

Here are some examples of how you can volunteer with the Mentrau Iaith and Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam:

Volunteer’s Voice

Name:

Gareth Hughes

How do you volunteer? 

I’ve been a Director for Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam for almost two years now, and during that time I’ve enjoyed being a part of various events and activities that they’ve organised to promote the Welsh language in the area. Personally, one of the highlights for me was taking part in the Saint David’s Day Parade in Wrexham.

Why volunteer?

Born and raised in Mynytho in the Llŷn Peninsula I suppose I took the Welsh language for granted. However,since moving to Coedpoeth I have come to realize you can’t take the language for granted. My wife and myself are trying to raise our two young boys in Welsh, so personally creating opportunities to promote the Welsh language is very important to me and this is why I appreciate the Mentrau Iaith work and so willing and proud to be able to help as much as possible.

Siwan Elenid Jones

How do you volunteer?

I love taking part in some of Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam’s main events during their busiest times by offering an extra pair of hands and eyes. From helping out on information stalls to dancing in the Magi Ann parties, there’s so much variety and I always enjoy helping out.

Why volunteer?

There are so many benefits from volunteering with the Menter that’s so important to acknowledge:

  • You get to be part of a team, and feel great when an event is a success, and that your contribution is appreciated.
  • It’s a great way of developing various skills such as communication and solving problems.
  • It’s very beneficial for your CV as it shows that your enthusiastic and are willing to give your time to give a helping hand.
  • You gain a sense of responsibility when volunteering and I believe that volunteering is one of the main features that shapes an individuals’ life and personality.
