Day Trip Volunteers

Friends of Hillcrest is a charity group ran by many volunteers to support Hillcrest Care home in Girvan.

We also look for volunteers to support our driving team to be an extra pair of hands when out on our trips. Taking residents for trips out to places such as the seaside, bring back happy memories and provides so much joy. This encourages the residents to talk about their memories and can prove to be a powerful stimulant, providing a much-needed change of scene along with a breath of fresh air. Being a volunteer, supporting these day trips will definitely make a change to the residents.

Volunteers will come from a wide range of backgrounds and will have many different qualities and skills. Essential qualities for this role are: an enthusiastic and positive attitude and being a team player, willing to work with others from a range of backgrounds.

Throughout the volunteering opportunity you will gain new skills and experience working with residents, their families and carers. You will also gain practical experience of assisting a group of people on a minibus and day trips.

Taster available

Volunteers (aged 12-25) taking part in this opportunity are eligible to claim Saltire Awards hours for their activity.
