Volunteers needed to support older people in Rugeley

Michelle Cliff (Locality Officer for Cannock Chase) enjoyed a visit at St Pauls church hall in Rugeley to meet the volunteers and members of a lunch group run by MHA Lichfield & District Live at Home 

This weekly group can accommodate up to 25 people for lunch and social activities, the members look forward to the get together’s and enjoy seeing the friends they have made.

Volunteer Drivers Wanted in Lichfield!

Help older people in your community maintain their independence by transporting our Live at Home members to local venues for activities and appointments.

The volunteer drivers will be asked to go and collect the older person from their home and take them to their local services within their community.

  • You can commit as little as a few hours a week
  • A hugely rewarding way to help others
  • An excellent introduction to volunteering

Sign up as a driver by calling your local Live at Home scheme today!

The Star of the Show

When Support Staffordshire held its 2019 Volunteer Star Awards at Westwood Golf Club, Leek on 13th June, the winner of the most prestigious award – the Lifetime Achievement Award - was unfortunately absent and the audience had to applaud a photo of her. There was a very good reason for this as the winner, Nancy Coates, was celebrating her 100th birthday that very day!
