Help needed for free ser­vice

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

CAN you spare a few hours to man the Cheshire Li­braries book-mo­bile?

The Royal Vol­un­tary Ser­vice and Cheshire Li­braries are ask­ing for regular vol­un­teers for their Home Li­brary Ser­vice in Macclesfield.

The ser­vice de­liv­ers books, large print books and au­dio books to house­bound older peo­ple free of charge.

Royal Vol­un­tary Ser­vice Manager Gill Tay­lor said: “This is a fan­tas­tic ser­vice that makes a real dif­fer­ence to the lives of older peo­ple in Macclesfield and around Cheshire.

“A regular visit from one of our vol­un­teers pro­vides much-needed com­pan­ion­ship and a vi­tal link to the lo­cal com­mu­nity for those who are un­able to get out as much as they’d like to.

“From our work with older peo­ple we know that ser­vices such as this have a great ef­fect on the qual­ity of life for both our clients and vol­un­teers. We have wit­nessed amaz­ing friend­ships de­velop.”

The team are also happy to hear from new older peo­ple who would like to ac­cess the scheme.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the ser­vice con­tact Gill Tay­lor on 07714 898 678.
