Volunteers needed for Uttlesford Deafblind club
Having a combined sensory loss can be quite isolating but with the support of our groups, trained staff and volunteers we help people to remain independent and to get out in their community.
The club meets on the second Wednesday of the month in the common room of Elm Grove, Saffron Walden (near Waitrose) from 10.30am to 2.30pm.
Project officer for West Essex Sue Ryder said: “Our small group is looking for reliable, caring volunteer driver/helpers willing to do pick ups to and from surrounding areas, to support during the meeting and on outings. No prior experience is needed as training is given.”
Contact Miss Ryder on 07751 657525 or e-mail email@example.com for further information.
