Your Local Alton Vokes Lunch Club Needs you!
We provide daily lunches in a friendly social atmosphere for over 60s living in Alton. Our members enjoy a home cooked meal and the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. Our Club is just opposite the Catholic Church in Normandy Street.
We badly need volunteers to greet and welcome members, to help those who need a little assistance, to join in kitchen activities and to serve our tasty meals.
If you would like to volunteer for a few hours a week please phone Allison on 01420 84235
