Age Concern is giving people the chance to make a difference in their community. The organisation is in need of volunteers to provide company and friendship for the elderly and lonely around Auckland. Volunteers would need to visit weekly for an hour at a time between Monday and Friday and be able to commit long term. A reference check, police check and training would be completed also. Two training sessions will take place – one on September 26 from 6pm to 9.30pm and one on October 10 from 10am to 2.30pm in Avondale. Call 820 2714 for more info.
