UK Year of the Volunteer 2005 

Helpers are needed by these very worthy local groups:


Stratford and District Talking Newspaper  (Extracts local papers to audio tape for those with sight impairment and produces a monthly magazine) - needs a volunteer for technical support of fast copiers and recording equipment when occasional problems occur. Readers are also needed.


The Loft Workshop (Helping people gain skills and confidence through workshop activities and providing furniture to people on low incomes) urgently requires electric sewing machines for the craft workshop.


Breast Cancer Campaign  (Funds independent breast cancer research throughout the UK) - needs Regional Fundraising Volunteers to represent the charity at events and to organise and participate in fundraising activities.


Contact the Elderly (Taking elderly isolated people out the Sunday afternoon tea in small parties.) - needs Sunday afternoon rota drivers (to take elderly people to tea parties) and semi-annual hosts for those parties (of up to 14 people twice a year).


Samaritans (Emotional support to those in distress 24 hours a day 7 days per week) - needs volunteers to promote the Samaritan work via local press and radio; also helpline assistants (20 hours per month), & fund raisers.
