Volunteers needed

PUBLISHED: 19:00 08 August 2012

VOLUNTEERS are being asked to step forward and help those suffering with dementia in North Somerset.

Alzheimer’s Society is looking for befrienders, who give a couple of hours to lend a hand weekly or fortnightly.

They would provide companionship to someone with the early stages of the illness and help take them to social events and take part in activities.

As a befriender they would visit someone on a regular basis and build trust.

If you would like to help call Tori Jones on 07801 133745.
