Can you help arrange flowers for the York Hospital Chaplaincy team?

At hospital we are looking for a volunteer to come in and arrange the flowers in the chapel on a pedestal, about 4/5 times a year – usually at the change of a season.
They would not need to go through volunteer checks simply turn up at their convenience and do it. They are all silk flowers, and we have quite a selection for someone to do the flowers with, so there would be no expense.
Contact Revd Louise Grosberg on [email protected] or 01904 725678

Street Angels

Street angels York is a church led initiative of volunteers who want to help make York city centre and safer and better place. Volunteers walk the city streets into the early hours on Friday and Saturday nights caring for, practically assisting and listening to people, particularly those in vulnerable or difficult situations.

We are recruiting for volunteers! If you would like to know more about us – look at the website www.streetangelsyork.com or if you have questions email us at [email protected] or you can message through our Facebook page.
If you think you may be interested in having a go then we can arrange a night shadowing the team and then you can make your mind up. Don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Dates for next year’s courses are attached, please book.
