We have over 60 fantastic volunteers who support local people every day with a variety of services, our volunteers support services such as employment support, companionship, social clubs, driving people to appointments, doing gardening and much much more.
As we are coming close to the end of our funding we would like to raise some money to keep the volunteer support in place for as long as possible. This is so we can try our hardest to gain funding from elsewhere as we don't want to leave anybody without help.
EVERY penny donated goes into directly supporting the volunteers, this will be used to pay volunteer expenses. As we don't want our volunteers to e out of pocket as a result of volunteering their time and support. So if we help you get to a hospital appointment, then the volunteer will get their mileage paid etc. We also cover travel expenses so volunteers can get to and from their volunteering and
£4 will enable a volunteer to travel by bus or tram to their place of volunteering
£6 will enable a volunteer to drive someone to an appointment or to drive to do some gardening
£10 will enable us to support the befriending volunteers to provide refreshments when they visit people
