We need helpers at our Social Club for the Blind

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

We are re-opening our Walford Hall Club for our Members experiencing degrees of Sightloss, 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 help at the Club, there are a range of tasks available to help the Club run smoothly and people enjoy.

From 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, to getting to know our Members, have a bit of chat and fun.
