Help us combat loneliness and social isolation in Southcote

Support volunteers needed for Southcote Community Association in RG30

We are seeking volunteers to help out at our Monday Over 50s club in Southcote.

We are looking for people who could help us ensure that the club runs smoothly and safely and that members feel welcome.

Tasks for this role will include:

  • Welcoming members as they arrive and  showing them to their seats.
  • Taking tea and coffee orders.
  • Helping out with the activities; quizzes, bingo etc.
  • Chatting with members.
  • Helping with packing away at the end of the session.

We are looking for friendly, sociable volunteers who are happy to muck in to make sure that the clubs members have a fun, safe and enjoyable experience.

The few hours you offer each week will make a real difference to a club that plays an important part in combating loneliness and social isolation.
