Volunteers are essential to the running of Strathmore Cricket Club enabling children, young people and adults to get involved and raise participation in this great sport.
There are a variety of roles that you can get involved in as a:

Are you a Cricket fan? Want to get involved through volunteering.
Like all sports, cricket needs people who take on organisational and officiating roles to make it possible for others to play. Every match played requires a host of volunteer input to make them run smoothly so whether you want to get involved as a Scorer, Umpire, Match Secretary, Coaches and assistants, Captains, Parental Liaison, Schools, Volunteer driver there will always be an opportunity for you?
We currently have opportunities for people to become involved in:
· Scoring – keeping match scores, maintaining statistics etc.
· Umpiring- the cricket equivalent of refereeing
We run two adult teams which play on Saturdays, Sundays and on some mid-week evenings and are looking to recruit scorers and umpires for both teams.
These opportunities would be suitable for people who have an interest in sport, but do not wish to participate as players. They provide an opportunity to be part of the team, without taking part in the more physical elements of the game. There are established pathways in these disciplines that allow people to progress from officiating at local clubs through to international sport. Get in touch to start your volunteering journey at Strathmore Cricket Club.

Re-engage exists to support older people who live alone and find it hard to get out in normal times. The Covid-19 crisis is particularly devastating for these people and many are feeling incredibly vulnerable, especially those with few family members or friends to talk to.
In response to the crisis we’ve suspended our regular social gatherings and, with the help of our dedicated volunteers, have set up a UK-wide call companion service. Older people who are feeling alone can receive a regular friendly phone call throughout the crisis and beyond, for as long as they want it.
As a call companion, you will make regular telephone calls to a lonely and isolated older person. These calls provide a lifeline of friendship for our older people, and the regular, warm, friendly chats and companionship provide a vital link with the outside world from which they have become isolated.
Tasks include committing to calling the older person you have been matched with two to four times per month at an agreed time and following the guidance in our call companion training modules.
This is a fun and rewarding role which will enable you to connect with a lonely older person and make a real and lasting difference to their life.
Re-engage exists to support older people who live alone and find it hard to get out in normal times.
Call Companions is a telephone befriending service providing regular chats to older people, often living on their own and with little social interaction, launched in response to the Covid-19 crisis. Our call companion coordinators are volunteers, over the age of 18, who oversee a small group of around six call companions and the older people they speak to on a regular basis.
As the call companion coordinator, you will be the main point of contact for everyone in your group. You will be in touch regularly with both the volunteers and the older people, making sure they have all the support and information they need to make or receive their regular calls and responding to any queries or concerns. You will keep the team at Re-engage updated and submit a monthly report. This is challenging but rewarding role that makes a big difference in the lives of people experiencing loneliness.
