Volunteer Driver- Monday Club

VOLUNTEERS DRIVERS NEEDED!

  • Are you free for a couple of hours on a Monday morning each week?

  • Maybe popping into Winchester to do a bit of shopping, or meeting friends for a coffee?

  • Would you consider picking up an older lady or gentlemen on route and bringing them to our NEW Monday Morning Activity Club for a couple of hours then dropping them home afterwards?

  • If the answer is YES, we could have the perfect volunteer role for you!

Our Aim: to reach older people in the community who are socially isolated and lonely by recruiting a warm and engaging team of Driving Volunteers. The drivers should be willing to pick up an elderly person and drop them off at our exciting new Monday Club, before driving them back home afterwards

The new Club is based at Chesil Lodge, Chesil Street, located close to the heart of the city centre. The Club will run from 10.00am - 12.00pm every Monday morning; our members would need to be dropped off just before 10.00am and collected at 12pm promptly.
