Our informal, friendly social groups offer a range of fun and engaging activities to support and promote the health and wellbeing of older people – everything from quizzes and games to chair exercises and singing.
As a volunteer for our Kingsclere group, you will be assisting with serving a light lunch to the club members and this may require food preparation in the kitchen as well as cleaning up afterwards. Food and hygiene training will be provided.
Occasionally we also invite in guest speakers/entertainers, and volunteers should be willing to help with very occasional outings to Garden Centres, Christmas lunches etc.
As a Volunteer you will help run the fun and engaging activities, as well as providing refreshments to the people attending. There may be some preparation needed.
A range of activities is offered at each session including: quizzes, raffles, bingo, games, talks and sing-songs.
Each time is informal and everyone (including the volunteers!) should enjoy themselves.
The volunteers at each Group should work as part of a team and share tasks, such as, tea/coffee making, being involved in the activities, helping members to complete activities, lending an arm to walk etc.
