Older People's Activities

Would you like to help V Team and volunteer with Age UK B&NES? Check out some of the volunteering opportunities available below:
  • Research Objects 31st January, 2019 (Thursday) - Click here to sign up
    It is a one-off events for the Age UK Culture Club held at St John's Foundation Meeting Room.  This is an opportunity to allow PGR students to engage older people with research.  You'll be given the challenge of devising and delivering a short presentation (5-10 minute) about your research, about why it matters and its (potential) impact to a group of older people without using powerpoint slides.  Instead, you'll need to choose an object either associated with, or that encapsulates, your research and present this as a 'hook' of your talk.  
  • Day Centre Helper 11th, 14th and 15th February (Monday, Thursdsay, Friday) - Sign up open soon (watch this space)
