Enthusiastic people to help with new services to the elderly

We are looking for volunteers for a variety of roles within the new scheme:

Club Helpers : To join in with Clubs and Groups. These clubs and groups are a chance for members to get together, have some fun, company and enjoy an activity.

Lunch club helpers: There are also lunch clubs at venues, so maybe you are a dab hand at cooking or can help serve or organise the coordination of a lunch service

Befrienders : Many older people in their own homes can become isolated and lonely, but with a regular weekly visit - perhaps to read the newspaper to a visually impaired person, or to play cards or just to go and have a chat and a cuppa, can mean so much.

Drivers (both car and minibus): A key part of independence is being able to get out and about

Driver Escorts : To assist our volunteer driver and our members on the minibus.

Shoppers: Sometimes it's not easy or even possible for people to just pop out for their essentials. Our volunteer shoppers can assist either once off or on a regular basis.

Fundraisers : To assist with continued fundraising opportunities.
