On the 1st March we held our first open day here at Towcester with the aim of recruiting more volunteers to help us support those affected by PSP and CBD.
We want to recruit and train more volunteers to take calls during the evening helpline service, and also volunteers to work with our helpline team to lend an ear with the month on month increase in calls that the helpline team are dealing with. At the same time, we are also looking to increase our support worker team nationally.
Following posters in libraries, a local radio interview with Carol Amirghiasvand and Dianne Whitney who lives with PSP and her husband, Phil, articles in local media and appeals to community groups a lot of interest for the open day was generated. Local residents dropped in to find out more about PSPA and our volunteering roles and we are now hopeful that, as a result, we can begin to build our teams, and carry on the recruitment and training throughout the rest of the year.
But…there is still room for more! If you have a few hours to spare and would be interested in finding out more about our flexible volunteering roles please call Wendy on 01327 356134 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
