Volunteering opportunities

Many organisations in Marlow rely on volunteers, including Marlow Community Association itself.   Following on from the very successful Volunteer's Fair a couple of years ago, this page will present details of current volunteering opportunities.  If you have a few hours to spare and would like to take a more active role in the local community, then please have a look to see if there's anything that would suit you.  

And if you are part of a local community organisation or group that is looking for volunteers and you'd like to advertise here, please contact the office or email mcatechsprt@gmail.com with the details.

At the moment, we have details of opportunities at:

  • MCA's Friday Club

  • MCA's Cameo Club

  • Marlow Museum

 

Friday Club

 

The Friday Club is a section of the Marlow Community Association. We are looking for helpers to join a small team cooking a good lunch for between 12 and 15 senior citizens on a Friday morning between 10am and 2pm at Liston Hall.  We work in teams of 3, sometimes 4, on a rota basis - so not every week . You can do some cooking if you so wish or just assist in the kitchen preparing vegetables, set tables or make coffee and talk to the guests.

Most of our guests are in their 80s and 90s with a few in their late 70s. Some are brought to Liston Hall by car and others make their own way. They arrive sometime after 10.30 for coffee and a chat and lunch is served at 12.15. They then get taken home at about 1.30/2.00pm.

If this might be for you, then please ring Caroline on 01628 471669 or talk to Cindy in the Liston Hall office.

We are also in need of some extra drivers - again on a rota basis so not every week.

Cameo Club

The Cameo Club is a section of Marlow Community Association. CAMEO stands for 'Come And Meet Each Other'.   

 

Cameo provides lunches monthly to local senior citizens, but sadly due to a lack of volunteers at the present time we have to run two groups, which means effectively the guests are invited bi-monthly. Lunches are held in the Garden Room at Liston Hall on the third Wednesday of every month.  Teams of volunteers cover the lunches through the year so you would not be required to help every month.

 

If you might be interested in volunteering to help, please contact Carole Holme on 01628 473577 or email carole.holme@btinternet.com.

We look forward to hearing from you.

 

Marlow Museum

We are looking for volunteers who enjoy meeting other people and could do a regular 2, 3 or 4 hour slot once a month at our local Museum as a steward to welcome visitors. It's all about Marlow, but you don't need to know a great deal about local history, because you will pick it up as you go along. You find out some fascinating things. There are always two stewards on duty, so you won't be alone.

 

From March to the end of October we open on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from 1-5pm and on Wednesdays from 2-5pm. In the winter the hours are reduced to Sundays only from 2-4pm. 

 

You may be surprised to know that we have visitors from all over the world!  So it is a great pity when we cannot open the Museum because we don't have enough stewards.  Would you consider helping us?  If so, please email contact@marlowmuseum.org  or ring Della on 01628 482515. Thank you.
