YES, we need Volunteers!
We are always happy to hear from local people who are willing to spend some time to become a LINK volunteer driver, coordinator or committee member. Being a LINK volunteer can give you a new interest and make good use of your skills and experience. At the same time, you will make a valuable and much appreciated contribution to the local Community. If you are interested please ring 01249 461881
LINK schemes are charities and receive discretionary grants only from Wiltshire Council. Funds are also raised from local events. LINK volunteers receive a mileage allowance and out of pocket expenses. We are always grateful for donations from those who are able to help.
