Age Connects Torfaen are looking for volunteers to help run the regular lunch clubs on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays within Torfaen.
Carried out at lunch club venues:
Court Farm & Oakfield Community Centre
St Mary’s Church Hall, Croesyceiliog
Ponthir Village Hall
Widdershins Centre, Sebastopol
The lunch clubs help elderly people socialise and connect with others in their community and provide a valuable community based source of support and friendship for older people. They are also provided with a meal
The volunteers at lunch clubs help with the general organisation of a lunch club day and also in chatting to and helping the elderly people over lunch. It’s a very friendly atmosphere and a great community spirited place to volunteer with.
Volunteers start around 11am and assist until 1.30pm.
You could assist both days or just one day per week if you preferred.
The work is rewarding and can provide valuable experience for those wanting to pursue opportunities in care or community work.
