About the Discount Card

discount card main WH

WestmeathVolunteer Centre is delighted to announce that we are launching a new volunteer discount card scheme in association with Westmeath Community Development.


WHAT IS THE VOLUNTEER DISCOUNT CARD?

We believe passionately that volunteering is good for people and good for society - a win-win! We also believe that volunteering should be recognised and rewarded.

As part of our role in supporting and rewarding volunteering in Westmeath, we are launching a new discount card scheme for volunteers.

The idea behind the card is that local businesses will offer various 'rewards' and incentives to people who volunteer in the community, such as discounts off the purchase of products and other reductions including 2 for the price of 1 offers.

This is a great and unique opportunity for you as a local community group to thank your volunteers for their contributions, to promote your organisation as a good place to volunteer and to attract new volunteers to your organisation.

In 2015, we will launch the card and publish a list of participating local businesses and the 'rewards' they are offering to our local volunteers.


HOW MUCH DO THE CARDS COST?

They are completely free! Westmeath Volunteer Centre will provide your organisation with the number of cards that you require. All that we ask is that you fill in this simple registration form.

We only ask that you just supply the cards to current, active volunteers within your organisation.


WHEN WILL IT LAUNCH? 

We will officially launch the cards in Summer 2015 and be valid until end 2016.


WHY SHOULD MY ORGANISATION SIGN UP? 

·         It's a good way for you to publicly thank and reward your volunteers for what they give to your organisation.

·         It's free!

·         It's simple - we just ask you to sign up and we will suppy you with the cards that you in turn give to your volunteers!

·         It's good for Westmeath- volunteers are being encouraged to shop locally and support local businesses


HOW DO I SIGN UP?

Right now, we are trying to get a sense of how many cards we should print for community groups in Westmeath.

You can help us by clicking on this link and filling in this simple sign up sheet, including telling us how many cards you think you will require for your volunteers.

We will get back to you later this summer with more details and your cards!
