We support community and voluntary groups in Rushcliffe, from advice centres and lunch clubs to wildlife trusts and scout groups. We're here to help and inspire groups and organisations to get started and run professionally. We offer expert advice and assistance with training, fundraising and volunteering, as well as giving encouragement and moral support.
And because we believe in what these groups stand for, we endeavour to represent their views to those who make decisions affecting their work. To get a fuller picture, click on the Services, Projects and Volunteers tabs.
It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Carola Jones; a dedicated trustee, passionate colleague and dear friend.
Carola supported the residents of Rushcliffe for many years in both a professional and voluntary capacity. Through her work with Rural Community Action Nottinghamshire (RCAN) she supported community groups and parish councils to identify needs and develop provision to meet these needs. Carola would always acknowledge she could not have done this without the support of the many organisations which work in Rushcliffe and Nottinghamshire. The success of the various projects, she would say, was due to the amazing commitment, effort and enthusiasm of the volunteers. She firmly believed in the voluntary sector and was a true enabler.
In November last year she was nominated for a Rushcliffe Community Award and was presented with the Mayor’s Special Award for her work with communities and voluntary groups in Rushcliffe. A proud day indeed for Carola and RCVS
Carola will be missed by many people, her passion and drive was infectious. Not least we will miss her generosity of spirit, her positive attitude and her determination to get the most out of every day.
We will all miss that welcome and hug... and wonderful smile!
