Card Making Group Volunteer Helpers

  • VO77588


Description

We have been running a card making group for a group of people with learning disabilities for the past 7 years.

There is a group of 6 people with learning disabilities who attend the group and there is always a great atmosphere at the group who all greatly enjoy attending.

The group meets on a Wednesday afternoon between 1.30 to 3.30pm but we are looking for folk to help between 1- 4pm to allow for preparation and clearing up. Queens Cross Church where we meet has some storage space.

We are looking for 3-5 people to be volunteers to allow for times when volunteers cannot attend, so we at least have two volunteers involved at all times.

We are looking for volunteers who ideally have some experience of making cards or similar crafts but anyone who has an interest is welcome to apply. Your involvement would be greatly appreciated.

For more information please contact Jonathan Russell, Co – Chair at E Mail: accesstotrainingandemployment2@hotmail.co.uk or tel.: 01224 586435.
