Help us run our Social Club for the Blind!

Support volunteers needed for Reading Association for the Blind (RAB) in RG1

We need helpers at our Social Club for the Blind

Our Walford Hall Club is a Social Club for our Members experiencing varying degrees of Sightloss and ran by Volunteers.

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.

We are looking for Volunteers to join our existing team helping at the Club, to help the Club run smoothly and people enjoy it.

We need help with tasks such as a bit of washing up, food prep, helping with Teas & Coffees, helping on the Minibus, helping Members access the activities on offer, helping guide people, as well as getting to know our Members by having a bit of chat and some fun.
