Handy volunteers needed at Memory Shed

16th January 2020, 7:07pm | By Joanna Pazucha |

Alzheimer’s Support’s successful Memory Shed is looking for handy and enthusiastic volunteers so that it can open a new Friday group at the Potley and Pockeridge Community Centre in Corsham.

The Shed is a friendly group for men and women living with dementia who like making things and working with tools supported by trained volunteers.

Projects include making bird boxes, memory boxes, wooden animals and outdoor planters. Members are also supported to work on their own chosen projects. Carers are welcome to join in as full members of the group.

For more information about volunteering for Alzheimer’s Support and the Memory Shed, please contact Annie by phone on 01225 776481 or email Annie. Please note she works on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please phone the office for support at any other time.
