Role: Volunteer ‘Shopping Angels’
Organisation: Hambleton Community Action
Role Description: Hambleton Community Action has recently launched a new scheme to support elderly people in Northallerton, Bedale and the surrounding villages get out of their homes to do their own shopping at the local supermarkets and/or shops.
Volunteer ‘Shopping Angels’ will support older people who are unable to take themselves by offering them transport and support in the shops if needed.
We are seeking volunteers who can offer transport to and from the shops, go around the shop and provide help with things such as reading labels, reaching items, reading small print, help with bags etc.
The scheme aims to offer a social benefit by enabling people to remain more independent whilst providing them some support, much needed company and perhaps the chance of going for a tea or coffee before or after shopping.
Location: Northallerton / Bedale and surrounding villages
