Volunteer also receive training both before they depart and when they arrive overseas, return flights,medical insurance, National Insurance contributions and a financial grant ontheir return. International development charity VSO is trying to recruit fundraisers, not to fundraise for the charity in the UK, but as volunteers to work with overseas non-profits.The charity recruits skilled professionals to spend up to two years working in some of the world’s poorest countries, where they will share their expertise and knowledge with local colleagues.Placements vary between countries but in Ghana, for example, a fundraising officer is needed for a membership organisation that exists to share learning and ideas on best practice in relation to income generation andmarket positioning. The volunteer is needed to help develop fundraising proposals for the organisation, train local colleagues in fundraising skills and business management and create networking opportunities between members.

(July 27-28) – Casey Arneson and Jeff Taylor were $800 feature winners while Mark Dahl’s consistency made him the overall IMCA Modified champion at Dacotah Speedway’s Governor’s Cup special.Arneson captured the Friday night victory ahead of Travis Hagen and Dahl. Taylor pulled away in collect­ing the Saturday win, with Jeremy Keller, Dylan Goplen and Dahl next across the stripe.Arneson caught Marcus Tomlinson for the lead early in the opening night show, then pulled away as Tomlinson started to fall into the clutches of Dahl and Hagen.Dahl passed Tomlinson, bringing Hagen with him. Hagen grabbed the second position with 10 laps to go and began reeling in Arneson as the leader dealt with lapped traffic.Arneson ultimately used that traffic to his advantage, however, holding off Hagen for his first feature vic­tory at Mandan.Dahl held the Saturday advantage until Keller took advantage of a restart and took the lead away with 10 laps left. Another caution set up what proved to be an eight lap shootout.On the restart, Goplen dove low under Dahl for second. As they battled, it allowed Taylor to fly by on the high side of the track to take second place. Taylor then found speed along the high side and quickly caught and passed Keller for the lead and the win while Dan Aune finished a season-best fifth place.Seth Howe-Kellar swept Mach-1 Sport Compact honors, winning both features and the Governor’s Cup.Seth Howe-Kellar swept Mach-1 Sport Compact features en route to capturing Dacotah Speedway Gov­ernor’s Cup honors for the 4-cylinder class.
