Bye Bye Chloe

10 Mar

After 18 months at Opportunity Plus South West, I am moving on to pastures new.  Back in October, I attended an Opening Event at the new offices for the Citizens Advice Bureau in Teignbridge, where I met Tina Graham from Volunteering in Health.  I found out more about the charity and their great work, and when a job vacancy came up in February I couldn’t resist the chance to become part of the team.  I will be starting on Monday 17th March and my new role will be Volunteer Coordinator, and I will also be coordinating the charity’s new Home Help Service.

I will be looking to recruit new volunteers in the Teignbridge area, to befriend elderly people, and drive people to hospital appointments.  There will also be opportunities for people looking to gain administration skills or help out with events and fundraising – so please give me a call on 01626 774484 if you are interested in volunteering.

But it’s not just volunteers I’m after, there will also be opportunities for people who want to become self employed cleaners or handymen, with the backing of Volunteering in Health.  Please call 01626 774484 for more information.  Don’t forget Opportunity Plus can help you to get set up too – just call 0800 043 2440.

I’m sad to leave Opportunity Plus, but looking forward to getting started on a new project.
