Volunteer needed to help with young carers workshop

Would any WSP member be available to volunteer on Tuesday July 26th 10am – 3pm for a Young Carers workshop day?

Volunteers are not expected to attend all day but would be appreciated even for a couple of hours. The children attending will be between 11 and 16 yrs old and have a lot of support from the care workers who stay with them.

It’s a chance for members to become familiar with the new Raku kiln and assist others preparing work for firing and sorting afterwards. Clearing up duties would also be much appreciated. There may be a possibility of firing a couple of your own pots, but the priority is the visitors.

We have already had two visits from groups of Young Carers and both have been completely successful. All the children, who have responsibilities beyond their years, have been absorbed and focused.

No DBS (formerly CRB) check required in this setting. Please offer to help if you can, this is a valuable opportunity for these children.

Please contact Julia if you are available to help: email j.quigley@btinternet.com
