Do you enjoy physical activities and have a couple of hours a week to spare?

Leading group activities volunteer needed for Royal Voluntary Service Reading in RG1

We are looking for a volunteer to help us with our over 50’s yoga group. This is a group offering beginners’ yoga to older people in Central Reading. We meet once a week on a Friday for an hour-long session. It includes stretching and breathing exercises and meditation aimed at older people so that they can stay physically active and enjoy some socialising.

 

We are a friendly bunch of volunteers (currently four) and would love to welcome a new person in our midst. This volunteering opportunity involves coming to the sessions once a week and helping with setting up and delivering of the session. Don’t worry you will not have to lead the session yourself but assist the other volunteers. We also meet once a month for an hour or so to plan the upcoming few sessions.

This is the right opportunity for somebody who is looking for some volunteering experience and/or is interested in working with older people.

Drop us an email or give us a call for more details.
