Do you have IT skills & time to volunteer? Can you use your knowledge to help our volunteers get connected, access E-learning and help with emails and social media accounts. If so ReadEasy (Evesham and Pershore), a local adult literacy charity, would really like to hear from you.

Trustees needed to support Mental Health Charity in Evesham. Knowledge of personnel, a financial background, secretarial experience or charity and governance knowledge desirable. Must have access to a computer. Meetings are Tuesday evenings and hands on support at other times.

Once again, we are very appreciative of the work you and your volunteers do.

To everyone who worked and helped at last Sunday’s Christmas afternoon tea. Thank you very much. I really enjoyed myself. I spoke to people I had not seen for at least 30-40 years.
As a community organisation, we value the amazing range of skills offered by volunteers recruited through the Volunteer Centre’s bespoke service. Together they promote our ethos, support the wellbeing of our clients and muck-in at events!

I really enjoy helping others and, as I get to know clients and gain a greater perspective of their life and challenges, I also gain a greater appreciation of my own life.
