Give charity helping hand

AN organisation has launched its new volunteer recruitment campaign for Northumberland residents.

The MS Society’s Hexham, South East Northumberland and Alnwick branches are on the hunt for good listeners who are looking to develop their skills.

Support volunteers have conversations with those who suffer from multiple sclerosis. They also provide information about the condition and help these people to access available services.

Successful applicants will receive four days of initial training and a full induction pack. For more information, call Sheila Crawford on 020 84380969.
