Our centres rely on the support of volunteers, so that our Cancer Support Specialists can concentrate on providing our visitors with the support they need.
Administration, greeting visitors, maintaining the library area, filling the dishwasher, making cups of tea… there are so many different ways for our volunteers to keep our centres running smoothly.
All help makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated. To volunteer with us/for more details please contact Kevin Mathieson, Centre Head Aberdeen at email: email@example.com or telephone: 01224 645928.
Each week our volunteer team prepare, read and record articles from The Orcadian for those who are not able to read the newspaper. We are looking for volunteer recorders to help us produce a weekly CD every week. Reading and recording is done on Thursdays and the CD is copied and dispatched on Fridays. You can choose which roles suits you best and you would expect to do about 3-4 hours each month.
