Rewarding Volunteers across Milton Keynes!

We have been running a project in Milton Keynes called the Physical Activity Volunteering Project. We have been promoting Physical Activity and Volunteering across Milton Keynes by providing volunteers with credits. 

We have recently decided to let you- as a volunteer- sign up for your own credits! 

So if you are volunteering in any role within the Milton Keynes area then please click on the link below and fill out the short form. I will then be able to send you a credit which will entitle you to a free swimming session at Bletchley Leisure Centre. Or maybe you prefer to get active with a fitness class at 1Life Woughton Leisure centre.

Freedom Leisure at Willen are offering a 3 day pass to their  facility which have a sauna and steam room to help you unwind after all of that Physical Activity.

So if any of the above activities are of interest to you! Then sign up for your free credit*

*You can only claim 1 free credit a month, each credit can take up to a week to be processed. You will only be entitled to the credit once your volunteering has been confirmed with the company you volunteer for. The last Credits will be sent out at the end of July. If you have any further questions you can contact the administrator by email- samantha@communityactionmk.org.
