Charity Cotswold Friends need volunteers to spread the word in Cirencester about their Community Transport service for older and vulnerable people who may be isolated. Could you help?
Whether it’s delivering newsletters door-to-door, placing posters or leaflets around the town, or developing good relationships with local people and telling them about the charity’s aims, Cotswold Friends could have the right role for you, whether you have volunteered before or are new to charity work.
Local Charity Representatives promote and represent the charity, managing promotional materials and delivering important messages. They are particularly needed in Cirencester where demand for the charity’s Community Transport service has been rapidly growing since launch.
If you’d like to help older and vulnerable individuals to access this service, have good organisational skills and enjoy meeting new people, this role could be for you.
You can volunteer in your local area and the role is fully flexible. It would ideally require your time for one morning or afternoon each week.
If you think you could help, get in touch with Cotswold Friends’ Volunteer Manager, George Halling, on 01608 697007 or email [email protected].
Joanna Hammond, CEO of Cotswold Friends, said: “If people are not able to drive or if public transport is difficult for them to use or simply not available, our Community Transport service can be a vital lifeline to enable them to get to medical or social appointments.
“We’re pleased that we can offer this service in Cirencester and need local people to help us recruit volunteer drivers, and to ensure that local people are aware of the service.
“Volunteering with us is enjoyable and rewarding and our services run throughout the year, so we can find a flexible role to suit you.”
