Outreach rhymetime volunteer needed

Enjoy interacting with both the young and old? Like singing? Perhaps you'd be interested in learning the Rhymetime Volunteer Role?

We are looking to recruit Rhymetime volunteers to assist and learn from our current Lightwater Rhymetime Volunteer who runs an outreach Intergenerational Rhymetime at Bagshot Gardens Care Home (on the London Road, A30) every Tuesday morning at 10.30am.

The role would be to learn from and assist our current Rhymetime Volunteer, cover for her occasionally, and offer more outreach intergenerational Rhymetimes at other local care homes in the future.

A message from the management team at Lightwater Library:

"Having led these Rhymetime sessions ourselves, we have observed the amazingly beneficial and positive impact that Intergenerational Rhymetime can have on the wellbeing of the residents in the care home, as well as that of the little ones as they interact with each other while enjoying a fun singing session. We wish to support our community by providing activities such as Rhymetime that can help to encourage children's literacy, numeracy, motor skills, and socialisation.
It is also such a fun way to volunteer, as the engagement with both the little ones, their parents/carers, and the residents is a wonderful experience that I would highly recommend."

For more information please contact Lightwater Library, ask in the library, email or complete an Expression of Interest form.
