Volunteers at the allotmentAllotment Project

We’re very green fingered here at the Volunteer Centre. We run our own allotment that gives volunteers the chance to pick up skills and practical experience for the world of work. We try to use as much of the produce we grow in our very own White Hart Tea Room.  For more on the allotment click here.

Telephone Befriending

The Volunteer Centre matches people who are isolated or lonely with people who want to be volunteer befrienders. Instead of meeting people, this is a unique telephone befriending service.

Funded by the Heart of England Community Foundation volunteers make regular phone calls to people to have a chat with them.

To volunteer as a telephone befriender or to benefit from the scheme, give Julie a ring on 01827 717073.
