Lunch Club Assistant

  • VO31269


Description

Lunch Club Assistants help to serve a hot two course lunch (this comes from the local schools) or on alternate weeks a sandwich lunch (made by the volunteers), followed by an activity, quiz, bingo, dominoes or whatever the group prefer. Volunteers take payment for refreshments, make tea and coffee, clear tables and work with other volunteers to maintain a clean working environment. Support sessions are in place for volunteers and we ask that volunteers commit a few hours on a regular basis.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our aim is to help the elderly, housebound, disabled and isolated members of the community. We operate within the Larkhall and surrounding area, providing transport, a morning call line, lunch groups and a weekly support group. At this time, we are involved in a pilot project for a handyperson service.
