Coffee Morning Helpers

  • VO38955


Description

Caledonia Housing Association’s Volunteer Project supports older people living in sheltered and very sheltered housing schemes. We are looking for 2 volunteers to take over a Monday coffee morning at our small Muirlands sheltered scheme.

The tenants have run the group themselves for a number of years but due to health reasons the coffee morning has stopped. We are looking for 2 volunteers to work together and make the teas/coffee and socialise with the group. We are looking for friendly and patient volunteers who would maintain the groups on a regular weekly basis.

There is also a vacancy at our Fintry scheme, Wednesday morning bacon roll and coffee morning.

Caledonia Housing Association provides sustainable homes and a range of services for its tenants. The majority of its tenants are older people, from retirement age up.
