Help our members take part in Arts & Crafts activities!

Arts / Entertainment volunteers needed for Reading Association for the Blind (RAB) in RG1

Do you enjoy helping people do arts & crafts?

We are looking for Volunteers to help support our Members take part in the Craft activities at our Social Club.

The Club provides a safe much needed social environment for our Members to chat with friends, have a bite to eat and do activities such as craft, gardening, games etc.

You will help Members carry out the craft activity, describing what it is and how the materials provided could be used to create it.

Whilst doing the craft activity with them, you will also get the chance to get to know our Members, have a bit of a chat and fun, enjoying the creative process.

The Volunteers also help each other by preparing for the craft and clearing away afterwards.

We would also welcome any Volunteers with additional available time who could help with the organisation & preparation of our Crafts. But this is not essential.
