Age UK (Spalding District) is looking for people with time to spare to help drive its mini-bus.
Would you like to improve lives for older people in the Spalding area?
Do you have some free time weekday mornings or afternoons?
Age UK (Spalding District) is urgently looking for mini-bus drivers who can spare some time either once or twice a day or even once a week.
The volunteer drivers pick up and drop off a maximum of 12 passengers from the Spalding and Pinchbeck area for day care sessions. These are Monday-Friday (9-10.30am) and then take them home at the end of the day (3-4.30pm).
Only a normal driving licence is needed, MIDAS training will be given and there will be an escort on the mini-bus with you.
You need to be between 25 and 75 years old and a good careful driver
Are you a dog lover?
Did you know there is a Dog Rescue Centre less than ten miles away from the centre of Spalding?
Jerry Green Dog Rescue, cares for and re-homes abandoned and unwanted dogs. Although dog welfare volunteers are always welcome, help is really needed with fundraising and raising the profile of the organisation, which can, of course, include helping out at the centre.
Helping to raise much needed funds for the dogs is vital and if you feel that you could help with supermarket bag packs, school talks, street collections and manning stalls at events, please contact LCVS.
If you are only available to help out occasionally or fundraising is not for you, how about just helping out at an event, on the day?
Help blow up balloons, hang up bunting and hand out tombola prizes.
Any assistance will be very greatly received.
Or do you prefer cats?
Foster Carers are valued members of the team at Lincs Ark, which looks after animals until they are adopted.
The majority of the animals it fosters are cats and kittens, but it also needs foster homes for small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs.
Full support is given, food and litter supplied and vets costs covered.
The more foster carers it has – the more animals can be helped!
Lincs Ark also needs more people to join its friendly team and if you are able to help with any of the following, please contact LCVS.
Help out at events – set up/work behind a stall. Collect donated goods from the local area. Make items for Lincs Ark to sell, such as cakes, crafts, etc. Hold your own fundraising event, donate items for Lincs Ark to sell at car boots and other events.
