Helpers at the 60+ weekly Drop In/Lunch Club and also Drivers

  • VO93255


Description

The 60 Plus Drop In has been operating since 2016 and meets weekly from 2pm – 4pm on a Wednesday. The last Wednesday of the month is the lunch club which meets at 1pm until 2.30/3pm.
We are looking for volunteers to help run the clubs, this would involve setting up, planning activities and helping with these, making tea/coffee etc half way through. The members clear this up and wash the dishes etc. We often have guest speakers or agencies in as well as running activities ourselves.
Most of the members are in their late 70’s and 80’s hence the need to look for more volunteers to help with the club and keep it running. The volunteers would need to start at 1.30pm but should be finished around 4pm as everyone helps clear up.
Volunteers for the lunch club would start earlier in the morning as we cook the lunch at the Centre and help prepare and dish this up as well as clearing up.
We also will be look for volunteer drivers to pick up people around the Scalloway area and mileage would be paid.
