Description

Help us offer the best experience to our Pensioners Club, a lovely social group for older people. Set up the room, tidy the tables and chairs away, become a befrienders during the session.

The pensioners club plays a vital role in the lives of its members, is fun to take part in, and really will make a difference to people’s lives.

This is a great opportunity to develop your Customers Services skills and gain experience in a caring position, while meeting new people and giving back to the older members of our community.
