Welwyn Garden City charity wants to be your New Year’s resolution

IF your new year’s resolution is to do more for others, then there is at least one WGC-based charity who would be grateful of your help

Age UK Hertfordshire, based in Watchmead, is looking for people who can give a little of their time each week to help older people.

Spokeswoman Alison Smith said: “Currently, we have over 650 volunteers who support older people all over the county in a variety of ways including befriending, either through home visits or help over the phone, providing information and advice, helping in clubs, supporting older people, assisting someone who has just been discharged from hospital or helping out in an office.

“650 may sound like a lot but with a rapidly growing older population we always need more volunteers to help support them.

“This could be the best New Year’s resolution you ever made.”
