Local volunteers are needed to help

Macmillan Cancer Support is looking for volunteers across West Lothian to support people affected by cancer in their local community and homes.

They need volunteers who can offer their time and skills in listening and to support someone affected by cancer. Just a few hours every week could make a big difference.

Volunteers who participate could provide support such as shopping, light gardening, driving a patient to an appointment, chatting face-to-face or over the phone.

Nesreen Badiozzaman, volunteering services manager said: “This is a great opportunity for volunteers with good communication skills and an interest in supporting others in their community.”
