Hockley Friendship Group Volunteer

We are looking for volunteers to start up and run a new friendship group in central Hockley. This will be a friendly adult only group for people who are looking to make friends and find new interests. Lockdown has been tough for many people and this will be a place where people can have a chat over a cuppa and biscuit in a covid safe environment and generally have a good time.

If you are a great listener, friendly, reliable and good with people this role could be for you!

You would be joining a group of volunteers to:

- Help people mix and chat to each other and have a good time

- Help start conversations, especially if someone is shy or introverted, helping them make new friends

- Help people make teas and coffees if necessary

- Help set up tables and chairs and put them away at the end

- Help with the cleaning to ensure Covid requirements are met

- Enjoy yourself as well


We need volunteers each Thursday from 10.30am – 1.30pm to set up the tables and chairs in the room, run the group and put the tables and chairs away. The Friendship Group will run 11am-1pm

We are looking to start the group in August (subject to the lifting of covid restrictions) and have a group of volunteers on a rota so that we have at least 4 people supporting each session. Attendees will pre-book their place so that the room is not crowded and we will explain the role and support you so that you have a great time as well.

Whilst this is a volunteer position we will pay your car-parking costs.

-        Is friendly, approachable and kind
