Volunteers needed to help elderly live independently

12:54 29 January 2013

Volunteers are needed in Redbridge to help elderly people in their area live independently.

Every day charity, WRVS, provides practical services in homes, hospitals and in the community so elderly people can be independent and active.

WRVS are currently seeking to recruit volunteers to help out in a variety of ways including providing help with transport, social clubs and administrative support.

Anyone over the age of 16 can volunteer and full training and induction is provided while travel expenses are paid for.

If you are interested call Richard Clarke on 07714 898 548.
