Occasional Activity Host

Parkinsons UK Lanarkshire and Glasgow South. Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disease where exercise has been shown to be effective at slowing the rate of progress of the condition. Currently we have weekly exercise groups in Rutherglen on Tuesday at 1.30 and in East Kilbride on Thursday at 1.30 We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to help at these sessions, when our regular volunteer is away. This may involve moving/setting up tables and chairs, preparing teas/coffees with cake/biscuits, working with carers, collecting contributions, clearing up and putting away. Our group is mostly retired people. A knowledge of or connection with someone who has Parkinson's would be an advantage, but not essential.
