Royston Volunteer Centre manager Denise Graham’s regular look at the voluntary sector in North East Herts

Do you have a few hours to spare to help a charity whose dedicated volunteers support all areas of the organisation’s work and help people?

Cam Sight offers emotional support and practical advice to people of all ages affected by sight loss and more volunteers are needed to support the vital work they do, particularly across South Cambs.

So what about getting involved with a social support group in your area?

There are a number of support groups in South Cambs villages looking for volunteers to drive members to and from sessions, chat to people and help with refreshments.

Help is also needed for special events like outings, or you could run a raffle.

There is also a befriending service where volunteers make home visits to clients to assist with correspondence, take a short walk or just to chat. This is a wonderful chance to build a friendship while making a real difference in someone else’s life.

By helping others in whichever way you choose, you’ll gain a real sense of giving something back to the community as you meet new people and make friends.
