Cosgrove is a charity that supports people with learning difficulties and they have a number of volunteer opportunities that may be of interest.
They have openings in:
- Sunday volunteers for their charity shop, located at Skirving Street, Shawlands
- Volunteer befrienders. The minimum age for volunteer befrienders is 18 years so will only be suitable for some of your 6th year pupils
- Child Service Play schemes Volunteers for next Spring (Easter school holidays) and Summer and Autumn (School summer and October school holidays) – applications need to be in place by the end of January 2013
- They are also interested in hearing from individuals who are interested in Fundraising and Events management as they can volunteer with Fundraising teams for various events that are run throughout the year. There is also scope for individuals to generate their own fundraising idea and see it through all stages from the initial idea to completion.
Application Forms are available from Ms Lewis, Mr Dick or the Pastoral Team
More detailed information about each of these opportunities will be posted on Year Group notice boards
