Would you like to help people in your community during the COVID-19 crisis? We've launched Corona Helpers, a new website where individuals can pledge their support and COVID-19 support groups can recruit and manage volunteers. Visit www.corona-helpers.co.uk. This means that we may take a little longer to reply to contact requests about opportunities that are not related to COVID-19 support, so please bear with us and thank you for your patience.

The Balsam Centre

Name: Share your skills
Organisation: The Balsam Centre
Location: The Balsam Centre, Balsam Park, Wincanton, Somerset, BA9 9HB


Do you have skills you'd like to use or pass on? Maybe you know how to service a lawnmower or have carpentry skills, can make book shelves or picture frames, can teach touch typing or have a wealth of knowledge of wild flowers or enjoy teaching basic cookery. Or maybe you enjoy sewing and upcycling or repairing electronic equipment or servicing bikes.
The Balsam Centre has recently started a Men's Shed project, a workshop where people can come along and get involved in community projects, making planters or bird boxes, to provide a place to make friends and prevent isolation. We would like to extend this by running some short workshops and are looking for skilled volunteers to run them. Whatever your skill there is someone out there who would like to learn how to do it, so if you can spare us some time we would love to welcome you on the team.
