Bield Appeals for Volunteers in Dundee
Friday, February 13th, 2015
on behalf of Bield Housing And Care
Strathmartine Court, one of Bield’s retirement housing developments in Dundee is looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to spend a couple of hours each month helping out with social activities at the development.
In the past, social activities at Strathmartine Court have been hugely popular and a proven success in encouraging tenants to get out and about and socialise with others in their community.
Jeni Sinclair, Volunteer Development Worker, said: “Many of the social activities that we have held in the past have been a knock-out success amongst tenants at Strathmartine Court.
“So much so, that many of our tenants look forward to the opportunity to socialise and chat with their neighbours whilst taking part in various social events.
“This is why we are so keen to expand the tenants’ social activities, so that they can get out of the house and have a bit of fun, whilst building real and genuine friendships along the way.”
The development is looking for volunteers who are available, fortnightly, on a Wednesday morning from 10.30am to help co-ordinate social events.
Bield is a registered charity that came from humble beginnings, starting out with just one development in Bo’ness and now provides a wide range of housing and services for around 20,000 older people across 23 local authority areas.
If you are over 16 and interested in becoming part of team dedicated to enriching the lives of older people in Scotland, please call Jeni Sinclair on 01382 309059.
