Thinking about volunteering?
A few of the opportunities we have waiting for someone like you get involved with...
Can you help the Top VIP Club? They require a volunteer to help produce activities for their Club that meets once week. They have 25 members of mixed ability and ages (the youngest member is 32 and our oldest member is 96) who like to have different paper based activities to do each week. We like puzzles, quizzes and word searches. They donít take themselves too seriously and we like to chat and have a laugh.
Drivers are needed by the local branch of the British Red Cross to deliver aids and adaptations to people in and around Essex, Beds and Herts. If you have some time to spare each week and enjoy driving this could interest you.
The Harlow Foodbank are seeking helpers for their forthcoming food and cash collections outside various supermarkets in Harlow, just two hours of your time would be a real help.
Family Mosaic offer basic it training to their customers but would welcome Digital Mentor Volunteers to enable the learners to continue their learning following their initial courses. If you are a confident computer user and would like to share your skills, this opportunity could be for you.
These are just a few of the opportunities we have to offer volunteers, to see more, please look under the tab above 'I want to volunteer' and search the Do-It.org website or please give Della Nash a call on 01279 308310 to make a time to come into the office for a chat about what you could get involved with.
