We need new vol­un­teers to help out at com­mu­nity events

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

REN­NIE Grove Hospice Care is look­ing for new com­mu­nity vol­un­teers who can help at events this sum­mer.

Each year we at­tend a se­ries of fetes and fairs across our nurs­ing ar­eas in Herts and Bucks.

Th­ese events pro­vide a way of mak­ing con­tact with the lo­cal com­mu­nity, as well as an op­por­tu­nity to talk about and pro­mote the work of the char­ity and raise much-needed funds.

Vol­un­teer­ing in a team of three, and able to com­mit to at least a whole morn­ing or af­ter­noon, our sum­mer fetes and fairs vol­un­teers will trans­port and set up equip­ment for our stall.

They will then man the Ren­nie Grove stall and talk to the public about the char­ity and fundrais­ing events, sell raf­fle tick­ets and en­cour­age chil­dren to par­tic­i­pate in the ‘hook a duck’ game.

If you are warm and friendly with an abil­ity to en­gage in a pos­i­tive way with peo­ple of all ages and back­grounds then we would love you to join the Ren­nie Grove team.

For more in­for­ma­tion please con­tact vol­un­teer ser­vices on 01442 890 222 or email vol­un­teer@ren­niegrove.org

Are you at­tend­ing or or­gan­is­ing a Lent lunch this year? If so we are hop­ing you might con­sider sup­port­ing the char­ity.

Dur­ing Lent, which this year takes place from Fe­bru­ary 18 to April 4, many churches or­gan­ise a weekly lunch where parish­ioners get to­gether to share a meal and do­nate the cost to char­ity.

Com­mu­nity fundrais­ing manager Penny Cross­well said: “If you are tak­ing part in a Lent lunch this year and have yet to choose a char­ity to ben­e­fit from it, we would love you to con­sider Ren­nie Grove.

“We could also ar­range for one of our am­bas­sadors to at­tend your lunch to tell you more about the char­ity if you would like.”

For more in­for­ma­tion, please con­tact the com­mu­nity fundrais­ing team on 01442 820 718.
