Green fingered? Sociable and caring? This could be the role for you!

Gardening / Outdoor work volunteers needed for Age UK Berkshire in RG1

We are looking for a sociable, caring person who enjoys gardening to help out with a weekly gardening group for older people.

The ideal volunteer will be friendly and capable, helping people with activities where they need it, ensuring that participants are comfortable and safe during the session – alerting them to trip hazards, making sure that they are not too hot/cold, etc

There will be some setup and clearing away required before and after the activity session, plus providing light refreshments.

Moving furniture, plants and gardening equipment is involved, so you need to be physically able to do this.
