Forget-Me-Not Club has been supported by many volunteers over the years. Sadly, the pandemic had a huge impact on all charities, with volunteering put on hold.
As restrictions began to ease, it was still difficult for our charity to reintroduce volunteers, specifically due to the vulnerable nature of many of our members. However, we would love to welcome our volunteers back and add some new faces to the team too.
Opportunities to help with events, coffee mornings, social media, collection can handovers, delivering leaflets and so much more.
If you would be interested in helping, even on an ad-hoc basis, we would love to hear from you...
In the past, we were fortunate to welcome local nursery school children to our Resource Centre.
The children would join us for an hour or so and it was always fantastic to see the interactions between both children and our members.
We hope to be able to welcome our youngest Forget-Me-Not Friends again soon. Please get in touch if you would like to explore the possibility of visiting our members. Or perhaps our members and some of our team can visit you? Helping the children in the school garden, crafting or even having fun with loose parts play - many options to explore.
