Whats-On-Volunteer

A request from Stephen Ison of South London Jewish Services: “Please let me know if you or anyone you know might be interested in “taking over” the collating and presenting of the Children’s Edition. A volunteer, Pam, has been doing this now for around three years and would like to hand over the reins to someone else if possible. She says that she has enjoyed doing it and feels that it is a valued information list for babies, children, teenagers and young adults. It takes only a couple of hours a month.” sison@jcare.org
