Age Concern Chiswick looking for volunteers

A role where the desire to chat is considered an asset

Age Concern Chiswick is a local charity based at their Friendship Club on Oxford Road North. They are looking for volunteers to help out with running their Freindship Club and keeping the garden looking nice.

‘Our mission is to support older people living in Chiswick, Brentford and nearby areas.’

At the Friendship Club, members can meet like-minded people, chat, have a snack and enjoy keep fit, yoga,  line dancing and play bingo. Age Concern Chiswick runs outings every month and puts on occasional talks and workshops, and from time to time arranges special dining events.

They need more people to support their operations on the days they are open, currently two days per week on Mondays and Thursdays. The work involves helping in the kitchen to make drinks and light snacks and generally socialising with our Members.

‘A commitment to attend regularly but not necessarily constantly is sought.  In time we plan to open on a third day.’

A small team maintains the garden and more help is always welcome. Again, ‘regular but not necessarily constant’ attendance is what they are looking for.

Other volunteering opportunities are available for specific roles aimed at enhancing the Friendship Club’s development, and providing more services and events.

You can find out more about Age Concern Chiswick by visiting their website. If you would like to volunteer please email them and tell them what you are interested in doing, and a little bit about yourself, and they will be in touch.
