Age UK are looking for volunteers to help with a 'bucket collection' at the new Aldi store at Rimmington Way off Bicester Road, Aylesbury. The date is Saturday 13th February and they plan operating on a shift basis between 8.30 — 12.30pm and 1.30 — 5.30pm.
They are also always looking for volunteers to help in their fundraising efforts by holding events or offering a helping hand on occasions like the Aldi event. Elaine Wilson, their fund-raising assistant says, "Knowing that there are willing helpers out there that can be called upon makes our job much easier, as we continue to improve the lives of older people in Buckinghamshire."
If you would like to help in any way, please contact Elaine on 01296 431911 on Monday to Wednesday between 09:30-14:30pm. Or you can write to her at Age UK Buckinghamshire, 145 Meadowcroft, Aylesbury, Bucks HP19 9HH. (Registered Charity Number 1139423).
