The Age UK Cambridgeshire Visiting Scheme offers support to those people who find themselves isolated and lonely in later life.

There is a waiting list of clients in the Wisbech and Whittlesey area and the organisation would welcome the involvement of volunteers to assist their work in helping these older people.

Volunteers play an important role in helping to support and enhance the life of another in so many of ways and they in turn receive immense satisfaction and fulfilment in the role they undertake. Each volunteer can make such a difference by visiting someone once a week for an hour. It could be for a chat, cup of tea, game of cards or perhaps a trip out.

Dee Potter, Volunteer Organiser, is keen to hear from anyone who would like to know more about this opportunity.

If you have some time available to help call Dee on 0845 521 3481 or email
