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.

Halesworth.

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.

Southwold.

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.
