Fancy geo-caching and/or do you like building with Lego?

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.

Fancy geo-caching and/or do you like building with Lego?

One of our physically disabled members is looking for a person with a car to go geo-caching with once a month. If you do not know anything about it she will be happy to introduce you into the delights of this hobby. If you are already a geocacher then you will have a lot in common!

If the weather is miserable maybe you would like to stay indoors and build lego models together instead. She is a member of the adult lego club and would love to meet a fellow enthusiast!

Despite being in constant pain, she is great fun to be with and very enthusiastic about both hobbies. This opportunity would suit a volunteer who is happy to be either outside or indoors.
