Volunteer guide – Look and Sea Centre

Look and Sea aims to provide a first class experience for visitors to and residents of Littlehampton, capitalising on its unique position on the bend of the River Arun.

It is looking for adults of any age who are interested in assisting with school visits and children’s holiday workshops or acting as a guide for the Littlehampton Experience Heritage Exhibition.

Volunteers may offer as little or as much help as they wish and this can vary from time to time according to their personal wishes.

If local history and helping people interests you, then volunteering at the Look and Sea Centre would be an ideal choice.

Can you castle? – Leonard Cheshire Disability

Leonard Cheshire Disability provides services in support of disabled people in the widest context: care at home, supported living, domiciliary support, day services, rehabilitation and respite care.

One of the residents at St Bridget’s would like to play a friendly game of chess – so if you know your bishops, rooks and pawns perhaps you are the patient person who could assist another chess player.

They are looking for someone with a knowledge of chess and who is able to adapt the level of game, someone who is calm and competent with a good sense of humour and good conversation.

For more information on the above roles, or to find out what other opportunities are available, please visit www.do-it.org, call Volunteer Now! on 01243 864220 or email: volunteernow@vaac.org.uk
