Volunteers from local charity Cancer Support Salisbury spent the day on Bank Holiday Monday (8 May) involved in the Big Help Out, which was held in the Market Square.
This initiative provided local charities and community groups a chance to promote volunteering opportunities in Salisbury, as part of the Coronation celebrations.
Cancer Support Salisbury offers practical and emotional support to all those affected by cancer, their services include a social drop-in, counselling, complementary therapies, befriending and yoga.
Mayor of Salisbury, Tim Corbin, and charismatic archaeologist and deputy lieutenant of Wiltshire, Phil Harding visited the stand to talk to chairperson Rachel Salter and treasurer Robert Wells, to find out more about the charity and learn about the services it makes available to the local community.
Cancer Support Salisbury is always happy to hear from anyone who would like to offer their time to volunteer for the group. Volunteering opportunities can include providing refreshments at our social drop-in events, befriending (offering practical and emotional support to people who attend drop-in), joining the fundraising team or becoming a trustee.
Any spare time that you may have to offer is greatly appreciated.
