The service offered by Beacon Goodneighbours is so popular, we are in urgent need of more volunteers. Keep an eye out for our new 'Could you be a Volunteer Driver' leaflets around the Parish and please consider sparing a few hours a week to help people in your community stay independent and active.
Come and meet us at Hound Market, Abbey Hall, 1-4 pm on Saturday 26th April 2014. Beacon Goodneighbour volunteers will be on hand if you would like to find out more about becoming a volunteer. Pop along for an informal, no-obligation chat and a cup of tea. See you there!
On two occasions last month, fifteen Beacon clients enjoyed a lovely tea hosted by Year 6 and Year 3 pupils at Netley Abbey Junior School. Beacon volunteers provided lifts to and from the school where staff and pupils produced a fantastic tea and chatted with their visitors. The events were very much appreciated by the Beacon clients and it is hoped similar events will take place in the future.
Beacon Goodneighbours provided 1,137 lifts to the doctors, hospital and other venues for residents in the parish of Hound during 2013/14. 720 lifts were to medical appointments, 284 for social visits. This is clearly a much needed service for local people, so please consider volunteering a few hours a week to help.
The new Beacon Goodneighbours website is now live. We hope you like it!
