Chess opponent wanted!

Befriending / Visiting volunteer needed for ENRYCH Berkshire

Our volunteers support and enable people with a physical disability to take up, or return to, a hobby, interest, sporting activity or learning opportunity which they cannot do without some help or support. This support is mainly about giving confidence, understanding and emotional support to bring colour to our members’ lives.

Could you be a Checkmate?

This man who suffered a brain injury some years ago is looking for a volunteer to play chess with him at home.  He plays slowly so patience is required. He also likes playing scrabble.

He has been waiting for a suitable volunteer for quite a while. Are you the person he would like to play chess with?
