Lunch Club Assistant

  • VO31269


Description

This volunteer opportunity is for assistants to help at our various lunch clubs in Larkhall. These clubs provide an opportunity for members to come together for a chat, some lunch and an activity decided by the group eg bingo, cards, dominoes etc. You will help set up the room, serve a hot two course lunch (prepared by caterers) to the members, 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.
