Befrienders needed

Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin is currently urgently in need of Befriending volunteers in Bridgnorth to spend one to two hours a week visiting an older person on a regular basis for company and conversation. Befriending volunteers give their support by carrying out a social visit to the older person’s own home, enjoying a cuppa and a chat, reminiscing or encouraging their hobbies and promoting and supporting their independence by accompanying them to local activities.

The charity is also looking to recruit a volunteer helper for their Day Centre in Much Wenlock on Wednesdays at the High Causeway Community Centre from 10am-3pm. To find out more, call 01743 588570, email or visit
