Help us run our weekly coffee mornings!

Catering volunteers needed for Age UK Reading in RG1

We run a coffee morning called the Pop-In between 10 and 12 every Thursday morning at the Hexagon. The Pop-In is a place where older people can stop on their way to and from the shops for a chat, some company, activities and support.

We are seeking new volunteers to work with the Pop-In co-ordinator and other volunteers to make the morning go smoothly and ensure everyone is having a nice time.

Tasks will include welcoming people, making tea/coffee, collecting money, popping to get milk, helping with activities, supporting clients who need help.

A large part of this role is to give time and attention to new people who come on board so that they feel welcomed and part of the group.

We have recently put a lot of effort into developing a programme of events and themes for our pop in session so you will be encouraged to help with ideas and planning for future programmes.

In short, we need friendly, energetic volunteers to help us develop a fantastic facility for older people to socialise.
