AGE UK South Gloucestershire is looking for 10 volunteers for its befriending service in Hanham and seven to help in Longwell Green. 

Volunteering manager Michelle Dent said: "We are facing an unprecedented demand for our befriending service across the county and one of your neighbours may be in need of help.Befriending is simple but very rewarding. Our volunteers pop in for a chat once a week for around an hour and talk about everything and anything. It is simple but means so much to the older person."

If you would like to find out more about befriending, call 01454 411707 option 2 or e-mail volunteering@ageuksouthglos.org.uk
