Activity Centre Job Description:
Our volunteers help run our Activity Centres which offer local people an enjoyable day out, with games, activities, refreshments, a good chat and the chance to make friends. Volunteers at our centres help with a variety of tasks including organising quizzes and calling a game of bingo; most importantly they make a decent cuppa and are friendly and helpful to older people. We have centres all over Basingstoke, and take our clients on outings in the summer and at Christmas. Some of our activity centres also offer lunch.

We have volunteers in the kitchen who help prepare our breakfast and lunch menus, then shop for and prepare meals for our clients. Kitchen volunteers are required to have a Food Hygiene Certificate. Tea and coffee is served all morning from 10.30 to 1pm.
