CHEFS with a flair for food are being called to help disabled residents in Rustington who are keen to cook for themselves.
St Bridget’s Leonard Cheshire Disability home, in Ilex Close, is appealing for volunteers to help teach residents basic cookery skills.
Many of those living in the home would like to prepare and cook their own meals but require support to do so, such as gentle reminders of the order of a recipe, to set the oven or the opening of a can.
Volunteers will need to be aware of the potential hazards of a kitchen and take simple steps to try to avert accidents.
A full briefing of the residents’ abilities will also be given.

Leaders are needed to help organise activities at a community centre in Littlehampton.
The Tamarisk Centre, in Beach Road, runs a variety of classes and activities for elderly residents from across the area.
The role would see the volunteer supporting those joining in with all the fun.
This will be done either by teaching or leading a group.
Volunteers would be also asked to take a register of all those taking part. Flexible hours are offered.
Reserve volunteers are also required to cover any holiday and sickness that may arise.
For a full list of volunteering opportunities, see this week’s Littlehampton Gazette (Thursday, July 17).
