Homely Cook Volunteers

  • VO84595


Description

We are looking for Volunteers who feel able to support a lady to maintain her cooking skills, and support with some batch cooking. If you maybe have a background in catering, or just enjoy cooking this is a great opportunity to support an individual to keep on cooking with confidence. The lady is a keen cook and enjoys and values home cooked food but can often forget the process. She would value a Volunteer working alongside her to help her follow a recipe and potentially prepare some batch cooking, for when the lady is alone.

Get involved with Bon Accord Care. A chance to make a difference, help others, make new friends, gain work experience and more! Excellent support and relevant training are provided to all volunteers. A fantastic opportunity to help make a real difference-all volunteers are greatly appreciated.

For further details please contact Julie Suttar, Engagement & Liaison Lead at E-Mail: BACVolunteering@bonaccordcare.org or tel.: 01224 570400.
