>Dacorum School Sports Network needs lots of volunteers for its family fun day.

The network provides high quality opportunities for young people to experience the power of sport.

Volunteers are needed to help marshall the event, direct cars in the car park, help out on the stalls and with the general smooth running of the day.

Previous marshalling experience would be helpful but good people skills and enthusiasm are a must.

Volunteers are being recruited now for this event that will be held on Sunday, July 21 at the Jarman Park athletics track. It will build on the legacy of the Olympics and Paralympics and include a range of sporting activities, arts and crafts.

Volunteers get free entry for themselves and up to three additional family members.

>A volunteer treasurer with a good grounding in finance is needed by Girl Guiding West Division.

Guiding provides a girl-only space where they can grow in self confidence and have fun at the same time.

They encourage girls and young women of all abilities to take part.

This voluntary role involves attending three or four meetings per year and providing reports on the accounts to other trustees, completing returns for the Charity Commission, maintaining the accounts and all the other wonderful things that treasurers do.

Home grown charity Rennie Grove Hospice Care is looking for a new trustee with experience of being a company secretary or with a corporate or legal background.

The right volunteer will have strategic vision, creativity and flexibility as well as the ability to attend six trustee evening meetings and others that take place during the day.

>An experienced dog handler is needed by Guide Dogs for the Blind to help exercise a retired guide dog.

The volunteer will be expected to collect the dog by car and take it for walks. Training and support is on offer.
