Elderly befriender: Whatever our age, being read to is such a treat. Help provide companionship and reduce loneliness through visiting a local elderly resident and spending time reading to them. It could be a snippet from the paper, a column from a magazine, an old poem or chapter from their favourite book.
Run a book club: A local charity supporting homeless and vulnerable women is looking for a volunteer (or a small team) to run a monthly book group. This would include supporting women for whom English is not a first language, sourcing books and planning and leading the sessions - encouraging discussion and enthusiasm for reading.
