Tickets incentive for volunteering

An American company that offers concert tickets in return for volunteering launched the scheme in the UK yesterday.

Young people who volunteer for four hours on one of 50 projects organised this summer by Orange RockCorps, in partnership with charities such as volunteering charity CSV and support charity the Prince's Trust, will receive tickets. The company says 35 per cent of the 35,000 RockCorps participants in the US volunteered again after their initial involvement.

Dame Elisabeth Hoodless, executive director of CSV, said: "Without reimbursement, volunteering would be limited to the rich."
