PET lovers are being asked to help share the care for people who are unable to look after their own animals during a health crisis or other difficult times.
The organisation People and Pets Advocates (PAPAS) is seeking volunteers to help out by, say, taking a dog for a walk for its owner, when illness or old age prevents them.
Volunteers will, where possible, be placed within their own postcode area by PAPAS.
For more information on this and other volunteer vacancies, contact Derek Moore, Arun Volunteer Centre co-ordinator, telephone 01903 731223, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call in at the centre on the ground floor, Bradbury Centre, 1-5 St Martin’s Lane, Littlehampton, from 9am-4pm on Mondays and Thursdays and 9.30am-4.30pm on Wednesdays.
A Littlehampton charity shop needs more volunteers to carry out various duties such as serving at the till, sorting, hanging and steaming clothes, sorting bric-a-brac and window dressing.

The Voice of Progress talking newspaper for the blind wants to recruit another editor to produce a fortnightly issue once every eight weeks.

The completed editions must be delivered to the studio, at the rear of Rustington Hall, Station Road, by the morning of the recording session, after contacting the leader reader to notify them of any irregularities, such as special announcements or difficult pronunciation in the news script.
