Why not become a Volunteer?
Our member is a war veteran living with his wife.
His hearing is very poor and he is unable to communicate via the telephone, but is contactable through his wife.
His mobility is ok for short distances. He is a quiet and modest man with a gentle sense of humour.
His favourite past time is making model steam trains. He used to have a home workshop where he used to do this.
He is no longer able to do this unaided but would like a Volunteer who has a similar interest that could assist him to start doing this again.
There may be model railway social clubs in the local area that he and the Volunteer could visit together.
Our member communicates with clear speech.
