Friends of North Tyneside is a new project bringing together teams of volunteers aged 50+ to help improve the lives of children, young people and older lonely residents. Each volunteer will commit to giving two days per week for 12 weeks to help plan and carry out a community project.
The project is delivered by VODA, a charity providing advice, training, information and support to volunteers and community organisations in North Tyneside.
A Taster Session will be held on Wednesday 27th September 2017, 3pm-6pm at the Cedarwood Trust, North Shields.
This informative and interactive event will give you a taste of what's on offer as part of this new volunteering programme.
