Would you like to join a friendly team of volunteers helping elderly or disabled people in your community?
The Garden Buddies project is a gardening service helping people in South Northamptonshire who have no other source of help, look after their gardens.
As a Garden Buddy, you will be providing a valuable service to people in your area and in return could benefit from: meeting new people, learning new skills, gaining experience/skills to add to your CV or, just being part of a team. Our Garden Buddies project workers are DBS checked and, will be on hand to supervise every session.
The service is weekly Monday-Friday, between the hours of 10am and approximately 2.30pm, the time you give can be flexible and volunteers can opt for lighter duties, if preferred.
All tools, equipment and training will be provided.
Volunteers particularly needed in Brackley (NN13) and Middleton Cheney (OX17).
Enthusiasm! and willingness to help out.
