The Monday Club, which provides a meeting point for people with early signs of dementia, is looking for volunteer drivers. This would involve picking up client(s) at 9.15am to take them to our church and community centre in Buckingham Street and taking them home again at 3pm. They pay 50p per mile and there are local pick-ups only. The Club would also welcome volunteers to help during the sessions between 9.30am and 3pm — chatting to the clients, playing dominos and Scrabble and helping to serve lunch (lunch is provided for volunteers). If you are interested in either driving or helping, please contact Janice Colbeck: 01296 291968 or 07805 690174.
