Seeking creative story teller to entertain the residents of our homeless hostel

Arts / Entertainment volunteers needed for Salvation Army Reading Central in RG1

The role will involve the telling of stories to the residents of a homeless hostel. These can be of the narrator’s own writing or from books.

We are hoping to have two sessions a week, each of around one hour.

The volunteer will be supported by a staff member until such a time as they feel comfortable to carry out the role alone.
