Befriender – Volunteer

East Kent Mencap are looking for a companion who would like to spend time with one of our older tenants on a regular basis. She is active and frequently likes to go on days out and weekends away. She loves spending time out and about and is looking for a mature female to share her love of arts and crafts, accompany her on trips, and have a chat over coffee on Wednesday and/or Thursday afternoons. This role would suit someone who is laid back and cheerful, with a good sense of humour.
A daring duo took part in the KM Charity Abseil this year to raise money for people with a learning disability. Trustee, Paul Pinder, who is also one of our tenants, challenged Canterbury Community Manager, Della Heaton, to conquer the 100ft drop.
This week, our tenants at Arkley Road celebrated Christmas, a little earlier than the rest of us. Support Workers, Kelly Forrest and Kerry Williams came up with the idea to have a ‘Christmas Day’ earlier in the month as tenants were heading back to their families for the holidays.
