Get in touch with Southwark Churches Care. 020 7252 6381. They need volunteers in the SE1 area either to do regular visits to old folk or one off jobs such as gardening, hanging curtians etc. Sue Smith is the Volunteer for this area and I am sure she would be very pleased to hear from you
Just to clarify as far as I am aware you do not have to go to church to volunteer or recieve help through southwark churches care. I do know that they have people in SE1 waiting for people to befriend them which is why I suggested it.
Ivanhoe Don't worry I didn't read anything more into your post. I just realised that it might put boroughpaul (and others) off if they didn't consider themselve "religious" but they do need people now to do just what he is offering.
I am a volunteer for foodchain, a charity which works across london delivering meals to people with HIV and AIDS every sunday, drivers are always needed for anout 3 hours on a sunday or even other days for errands etc. They have a kitchen in bermondsey, just technically outside SE1, but near enough!
Its very rewarding and you`ll meet great people
