Charity call for volunteers in Kingston
A leading national learning disability charity is on the hunt for volunteers to support its work in Kingston.
Hft – formerly known as the Home Farm Trust – supports people with learning disabilities and their families and is looking for kind-hearted locals to give up their time to support two of its projects in Kingston.
At its Kingston Resource Centre, the charity has set up a gardening project for people with learning disabilities, who are supported by Hft, and are looking for volunteers to help run the project. Volunteers will need to attend once a week to advise and help with gardening, as well as acting as a ‘buddy’ to people with learning disabilities who have an interest in gardening.
Donations of plants and seeds are also requested to help get the garden started, as well as any good-quality gardening tools.
In addition, as local charity partner of the year for Sainsbury’s in Kingston, Hft is in need of volunteers to collect donations in the store at times throughout the year. All donations raised by the store from August 2012 to 2013 will be used to support a registered care home in New Malden, which is run by Hft.
Gill Orman, Hft’s Fundraising Development Manager for the Southern region, commented: “These projects will really help us to support people with learning disabilities in the local area. If anyone can spare any of their time to help us collect even more vital funds or support the Hft gardening project, we’d be extremely grateful.”
Interested volunteers, should contact Gill Orman on 01227 831930 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
