A NEW volunteering incentive scheme has been launched in Pembrokeshire through a partnership between Milford Haven Port Authority and Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS).

Treats for Time provides rewards or ‘treats’ in return for 50 hours of volunteering, for example a day at a spa, theatre tickets or an activity day at one of the county’’s many visitor attractions.

The scheme was launched during PAVS National Volunteers’ Week and Engagement Gateway Celebration Event at the Withybush Showground, Haverfordwest.

Stella Hooper, Port Authority Community Liaison Officer, said: “We are delighted to roll out Treats for Time and hope it encourages those who may not have considered volunteering to explore the wealth of opportunities on offer in Pembrokeshire.

As well as helping others, volunteering can add value to your CV, help you meet new people and gain new skills”.

The scheme is funded by the port authority and coordinated by PAVS.
