Advent Calendar Day 20

For the 20th day of our Advent Calendar, we will be making a £100 donation to the Southwold Voluntary Help Centre and the Halesworth Volunteer Centre.


The centre currently provides the following services with the help of volunteers:

  • Community Car Service – an invaluable local service for anyone needing to make certain journeys for which no family car or public transport is available.
  • Befriending Support – supporting individuals in their own homes, helping them to retain independence.
  • Resource Centre – providing information on community, health and transport to the local community.

We also provide a brokerage service for other local community groups and projects, helping them to recruit volunteers by advertising opportunities through our quarterly newsletter, website and  Resource Centre.


The Centre aims to provide a resource to the people of Southwold, Reydon and nearby villages, offering a range of ‘helping-hand’ services such as:

  • befriending
  • driving
  • gardening
  • shopping
  • signposting to other organisations

Driving is the service in most demand. With the continued deterioration in rural bus services, it is a vital resource for local people who do not have their own transport.
