We are currently looking for enthusiastic, helpful, and willing to get involved volunteers to join our small friendly team. The roles will involve assisting the team to enable them to deliver the activities, and volunteers would be required to help prepare and serve refreshments, assist in the activities (bingo calling experience would be great!), sit and chat with the Members, help us in the kitchen and the dreaded tidying up after activities! A full driving licence would also be helpful.
