Volunteer Friends Nuneaton and Bedworth (formally the Volunteer Centre) have started a new project, The Friendship Group, to help combat loneliness and isolation in the community. Their aim is to help groups or individuals get out and about.
For groups that want to organise trips themselves they can hire a 12 or 15 seat accessible bus which includes a volunteer driver. But if not there will be all kinds of activities such as tea and chat groups and organised trips such as visits to garden centres, pub lunches and boat trips.
To help make this project a success they need the kindness of volunteers. Opportunities to volunteer include:
- mini bus driving – full Midas training given
- catering – with a Food Hygiene Certificate if possible
- bus escorting – training given
- general help, serving tea, cleaning etc.
If you would like to volunteer for any of the above positions or if you know of anyone that would benefit from the project please contact Sandra White on 024 7631 5151 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
