UNIVERSITY OF LEICESTER CHAPLAINCY: Revd Stephen Foster, who coordinates the team of Chaplains at the University of Leicester, is looking to create a team of adult volunteers who can occasionally  help with student events at the Gatehouse Chaplaincy on University Road. The events, which help many students have a more settled and valued time at the University and the city, will give volunteers an opportunity to be alongside people from many denominations, cultures and faiths. If you might be interested in volunteering in this way, it would be helpful to talk to Fran in the first instance, and there is a ‘coffee, cake and explanation’ event at 2.00 on Tuesday 25th July.
