The volunteers will help Pendle Leisure Trust’s cultural development manager promote arts and culture on offer in the borough to local communities, through marketing, social media and word-of-mouth.

Fiona Whitty, said: “As Pendle Leisure Trust’s newly appointed cultural development manager, I am so excited to engage young volunteers to help us promote arts and culture in the borough.

“Becoming a digital connector is the perfect opportunity for young people to build confidence, learn new skills - such as marketing, photography and social media skills - and help to engage with and encourage communities to tap into their own creativity.

“We are specifically looking for young people to work as part of a friendly and supportive team of staff and volunteers.

"They will help to promote arts and culture in Pendle – and in return, gain professional skills that will benefit their future.

“It’s the perfect starting point to kick-start any young person’s passion or hobby, whilst doing something positive for the community at the same time.”

People aged between 16 and 24 can apply.
