Our Lunch Club Assistants help to serve a hot two course lunch (this comes from the local schools) or on alternate weeks a sandwich lunch (made by the volunteers), followed by an activity, quiz, bingo, dominoes or whatever the group prefer. Volunteers take payment for refreshments, make tea and coffee, clear tables and work with other volunteers to maintain a clean working environment. Support sessions are in place for volunteers and we ask that volunteers commit a few hours on a regular basis.
Our volunteers are required to keep information confidential, have a positive approach to people, reliable, understanding, good listening skills, ability to assess client needs and take appropriate action - sensitive to needs of others, non dominating and open minded. Our lunch clubs run from a various locations as follow:
LDVG:Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 11am-1.30pm
Strutherhill: Monday and Thursday, 11.30am-1.30pm
Hareleeshill: Wed, 11.30am-1.30pm
