A CHARITY which last year supported more than 50 older people living in Hanham, Longwell Green and Kingswood is looking for volunteers.

Age UK South Gloucestershire's information and advice benefits team carry out free benefits checks for people in later life.  

They also support people who want to claim benefits but are struggling with application forms.  

The team is made up of staff and three volunteers and last year their three benefits volunteers secured more than £660,000 of benefits for clients in South Gloucestershire. 

The charity is in need of more volunteers to help reach more older people who are in need. Just two hours a week could make a real difference.

To find out more call 01454 411707 and select option 2 for volunteering. Alternatively email volunteering@ageuksouthglos.org.uk
