COMMUNITY: Befriending volunteers needed

Community events.
Community events.

Volunteer befrienders are urgently needed for several Gainsborough-based charities, to offer some friendship and company to an older person or someone living with a disability.

Volunteers could help with shopping and hobbies, or simply enjoy a chat over a tea and biscuit.

This opportunity is ideally suited to someone interested in gaining experience in the caring sector, or who also finds themselves seeking some company and friendship.

Training and support is provided. This role does not involve any personal care, and anyone aged 18 to 100 could get involved.

For more information call the volunteer centre on: 01427 613470, email or call in to the Guildhall 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday to speak to a trained volunteer advisor about your skills and interests.
