Given some recent changes at the Society we are looking for volunteers to assist with our Tuesday Social Group, particularly with our members who are in a motorised wheelchair that attends each week.

The volunteer will need to assist with refreshments and the lunch meal (at times). There will also be time spent engaging  playing games (if needed), whilst at the same time engaging with all our other regular members attending.

This volunteer will be working alongside our current staff, the time required each Tuesday is approximately 3 hours, we will provide morning tea and lunch for you.

If this sounds like you or somebody that you know and you have a couple of hours to spare, please do not hesitate to contact the office on (03) 4555 894 discuss further.

We look forward to hearing from you.
