Help support our Lively Living Activity and Lunch clubs

Support volunteers needed for Age UK Reading

We are looking for a flexible volunteer to provide cover at several of our Lively Living Activity and Lunch clubs in the Reading Area.

Our clubs offer clients an opportunity to meet up with friends, participate in activities and have a nourishing meal. We want our clubs to be a comfortable and welcoming place for our clients to visit – the well-being and enjoyment of our clients is of first importance to us. We would expect our volunteers to work with us to achieve this aim.

Our clubs are run in Sheltered Housing residences based around Reading where we serve succulent food prepared by their canteens for our lunch clubs and prepare rolls and provide cakes at our tea club.

The hours will be 10.00am – 2.00pm or 12:30pm to 4.30pm (approx., depending on club). Most volunteers work weekly, but we are always happy to consider other arrangements such as working every other week. Volunteers will report to the club’s member of staff responsible for the running of the club on that day, and will be expected to work within the charity’s guidelines.
