Volunteer Centre team members Michael Young and Liz King are pictured at the first of this summer’s fundraising days on June 1.

Thanks to all who supported the event which raised over £400 for our charity.

Our second summer event is on Sunday so why not come down to the Roundhouse in Marlowes to find out about our fantastic raffle and quiz prizes.

A selection of the opportunities available this week through Volunteer Centre Dacorum:

Parents are needed to help other mums and dads facing tough times.

Home grown charity Home Start Dacorum helps families with pre-school children to cope with the stresses of family life.

Volunteers support families until they feel able to cope without further help. Tasks can include giving a parent a short break by looking after the children and helping with visits to the clinic. All volunteers follow an eight week training programme.

The next course starts in September so why not apply now? This is a great opportunity to meet new people, develop skills and make a difference to someone’s life.

Berkhamsted and Tring Stroke Support Group need lots of lovely volunteers to help in a variety of different ways.

The club offers social and leisure activities to people who have been affected by stroke. The club runs from 10.15am until 1.30pm. on alternate Tuesdays at the Social Centre in Bell Lane, Northchurch.

Time is spent playing quizzes and games and listening to visiting speakers as well as going on outings. The group is looking for a mature person who is caring and capable to take the lead and become chairperson.

The role involves running committee meetings, completing returns for the Charity Commission and helping out with fundraising as well as getting involved with club members during the fortnightly meetings.

The right volunteer will have good people and admin skills and be willing to get involved.

Club helpers are also needed to set up the room and interact with members as well as attend outings and push a wheelchair if needed.

Friendly drivers willing to use their own cars are needed to pick up one or two members and transport them to and from the club.

Out of pocket expenses are available for all these roles. If you can help in any way, this friendly team would like to hear from you.
