Could you help make the warmth of Christmas a reality in your community?
We are recruiting volunteers in the community who could offer to make a telephone call over the festive period to someone who is on their own.
This year we are offering the service on Christmas Day and
Boxing Day. You can help with this year's appeal by making a telephone call on one or both days at a time that suits you. If you are intersted in getting involved, please call us on 01773 512076 or Email:email@example.com
Support will be provided by Amber Valley CVS.
Volunteers need to enjoy speaking to people and have a caring nature.
