Volunteer with Alzheimer’s Supports exercise group

Alzheimer’s Support is looking for friendly volunteers at its Movement for the Mind group on alternate Tuesdays 10am-12 noon at the Rotary Hall in Chippenham. The group offers gentle exercise to music in a supportive and friendly setting. Volunteers would be required to set up the chairs before people arrive, serve tea and coffee and encourage members to join in with the activities and enjoy them themselves. Alzheimer’s Support volunteers are a friendly team, who make a real difference and have fun at the same time.
