nursing home launches new volunteer group
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.
