Verd-de-gris still need volunteers!


Call out for volunteers!
Are you looking to do something positive for you and for others in 2015?
verd de gris creative arts are looking to recruit new volunteers for 2015 – our creative dementia sessions will be running every week in Hebden Bridge and Halifax in the New Year. No experience is necessary, but we are looking for people who are committed to a compassionate way of being and can offer some time to help us in this ground-breaking work.
Our positive and uplifting sessions take inspiration from the landscape and seasonal change surrounding us. Our simple arts activities create beautiful results: poems that connect us to each other, simple songs with beautiful melodies that are a joy to sing!
This is an opportunity to volunteer / gain experience with one of the leading companies working in arts and health: verd de gris have worked with some of the foremost practitioners in creative dementia care and have a national reputation for excellence.
If you would like to find out more please contact Jeff @ jeff.vdg@btinternet.com or Sharon @ 07598387772
