Can you become a local befriender?

Volunteer Gold, a small community organisation that delivers seated exercise to a small number of older people in their own homes, is changing their focus and hope to set up a befriending service for older people in Brechin.

To help take them forward the group is looking for new committee members to join them and, in due course, become volunteer befrienders.

If you would like to become part of Volunteer Gold you can attend the group’s annual general meeting at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, October 22, in St Andrews Church hall, contact Margo Sinclair on 01307 473662 or e-mail
