Cara Jones, volunteer manager, said there were roles for everyone, ranging from box collecting, attending cheque presentations, working in a charity shop or giving talks. She added: “Our volunteers are an invaluable part of our team and ensure we remain truly rooted in the community we serve. If you have a couple of hours to spare, we would love to hear from you. We appreciate you may have other commitments, so we welcome flexible volunteers who do not need to commit to a minimum amount of time.”
