We are all probably guilty of not highlighting all the good work our groups do within the voluntary sector in Caithness on a daily basis. Here at CVG we have our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts and would be delighted to help you promote your organisation.
Simply send us a photo or two and a short note of what you have been up to and we can help showcase what you have been doing. Even better if you are looking for help of any kind let us know and add contact details and we can include that appeal in the post.
Email your good news stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any questions email me at email@example.com.
