We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Bus Escort

  • VO70312


Description

The Royal Voluntary Service provides social activities for many older people -- The Darby and Joan Club in Lossiemouth is one such service! This club is a volunteer-run social club that provides a wide range of activities from dancing, crafts and gentle exercises to specialist interests as well as the opportunity to catch up with friends. Volunteers are needed to help support older people to get to and from the club on the mini-bus -- helping them on and off as a bus escort. This is just for an hour or two once a week!

Volunteers need be friendly, patient and physically able to help assist older people if they need a hand on and off the bus.

Organisation aims and objectives

Promote friendship for the elderly with outings, parties and educational interests catered for.
