Some tuneful help is needed
WE’RE looking for some volunteers to give up just 15 minutes of their time a week and help out at our wonderful Singing for the Brain sessions in Beaconsfield.
Alzheimer’s Society provides support to people affected by dementia across Buckinghamshire and we already have some fantastic volunteers who help out in a variety of ways.
But now we’re looking for two or three more people to volunteer their time in a very particular way – by setting up and/ or clearing away the table and chairs at our Singing for the Brain® group in The Fitzwilliams Centre in Beaconsfield.
The activity is likely to take no more than 15 minutes yet makes a significant difference to the success of the group, which runs most Friday mornings between 10.15am and 12noon. Up to 40 people attend so approximately 40 chairs and 1 large table need to be moved.
If you would like to know more about the Room Layout Support volunteer role and/or the services we provide within Buckinghamshire, please contact Jane Penton on 01296 718956 or jane. email@example.com. uk

No one should have to face cancer alone and with your support, no one will.
