Royal Voluntary Service
Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund
Royal Voluntary Service, Cornwall
I work for the Royal Voluntary Service which is a charity that has been running since 1938, firstly the women's voluntary service and then in the 60's became the WRVS. in 2013 we dropped the W to be all inclusive for both male volunteers and service users. We look after the well being of older people. I run a befriending service for the charity, where volunteers visit an older person who is lonely and vulnerable.I also look after 10 social clubs and I lunch club in Cornwall. These groups are get togethers where befriending happens in a group situation. There are a lot of elderly people in Cornwall, who find themselves without friends and family, and we try to make a difference to their lives, so if its tea and cake, playing scrabble, going out for a walk or going on a trip, having fun, listening to entertainment - all of this gives them something to look forward to.
HOW WILL YOU USE THIS PRIZE?
I would use the money if I was lucky enough to be chosen to organise a trip out with a lunch for the RVS members from the local clubs and local area. This would be supported by local RVS volunteers who donate their time so kindly & freely. We are the biggest volunteer led charity in the country and it is always nice to reward them too. Please support Cornwall Good Neighbours.
