A charity organisation in north Shropshire is looking to recruit more volunteers for its work.

Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin (STW) is currently looking for helpers, car drivers, mini bus drivers and mini bus escorts, to support its day centres in Whitchurch and Wem.

Heather Osborne, chief executive of Age UK STW, said: “Our day centres can be a lifeline for many older people, especially those who live in relative isolation.

"Social interaction, a hot meal, interesting activities and outings are all provided by volunteers, who make a real difference to the lives of older people.”

The charity operates 38 day centres throughout Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin, open weekly from 10am to 2.30pm.

If you can spare a few hours one day a week, are considering volunteering and want to visit any of the day centres before you decide, please contact Claire Lewis or Janice Williams on 01743 588 570.

Alternatively, if you wish to find out more about volunteering in general, then please email volunteering@ageukstw.org.uk or visit www.ageukshropshireandtelford.org.uk

Training and support will be provided by Age UK STW, and out of pocket expenses are paid.
