Opportunity Description

Our Friday morning Chess and Checkers session happens in our on-site HomeFood Cafe. Wimbledon Guild is a safe, welcoming environment for older adults who might be suffering from isolation and loneliness, and our activities encourage people to socialise and relax together.

Work with other volunteers to deliver a Games morning session

Welcome in new customers, helping them get settled, introducing them to others, finding out what they would enjoy playing

Learning new games, or suggesting some of your favourites, and teaching others

Registering attendees and talking any applicable fees

Reporting to the Community Engagement department/ line manager about any issues or concerns. Also giving feedback about positive changes observed in new customers, or feel good stories
