Burnham-On-Sea nursing home launches new volunteer group

Members of Burnham Nursing and Residential Centre have launched a new volunteer group called 'Friends of The Burnham' this week.

The Burnham runs a varied selection of residents' activities and events and is keen to hear from volunteers who can give up time to help.

Fran Roberts, Centre Manager, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "There are so many ways in which volunteers can enrich the lives of our residents, whether it's joining in with current activities, providing one-to-one support to a resident that may not have regular visitors, bringing their own interest or hobby to show the residents, or helping at one of our larger summer events."

If you are interested in becoming a 'Friend of The Burnham' please contact Cherry or Dawn on 01278 781757 or call in at The Burnham at 19 Oxford Street in Burnham (TA8 1LG).

The group has also organised an art competition for the pupils of St Joseph's School which will be held mid March. The children are very excited and we are expecting some great entries.
