Library Direct Surrey Libraries and its dedicated volunteers work hard to make sure the library service can reach and support everyone. Many of Surrey’s residents are unable to get to their local library due to ill health, disability, mobility problems or caring responsibilies. But thanks to the Library Direct service this barrier is being removed. Library Direct allows individuals to once again select their own books, and have dedicated volunteers deliver them right to their doors. In addi$on to having complete access to library stock, this services also helps to combat isolaon. Volunteers will o9en stop for a coﬀee and chat, and in many cases, form friendships with the people they are visi$ng.
We are currently in need of more volunteers in the Frimley Green/Myche' area to enable us to deliver this service to residents no longer able to visit the library themselves. As well as suppor$ng individuals in their homes, Library Direct has a Community Se;ngs service. This service can also u$lize Library Direct volunteers to deliver crates of books to se;ngs such as care homes and rehabilita$on centres. For more informa$on on Library Direct please visit our webpage h<ps://www.surreycc.gov.uk, or call 01483 543599. Alterna$vely, you can email Library Direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
This service is a completely free and comes with addi$onal beneﬁts for its clients. Such as extended loan periods and amounts, plus no ﬁnes or overdue charges.

WE NEED HELPING HANDS Our voluntary group known as Helping Hands have been suppor$ng the local community for over 15 years. We provide assistance to residents of Mytche<, Frimley Green and Deepcut, mainly with transport to Doctors and hospital appointments, visits to the den$st and shopping trips . Our clients who are principally elderly make a small dona$on to cover expenses and our 35 or so volunteers give their $me for the beneﬁt of others with local chari$es beneﬁ;ng from any surplus funds we have at the end of each year. “I feel that we are giving help to those that most need it in our local community and this is hugely sa$sfying” is one quote from a volunteer and another said “it’s not a huge commitment as I say no if I am already commi<ed to something else in my life”. Helping Hands cannot exist without our volunteers. We are becoming busier as it seems that more and more people need our help. If you live in the local area, have a small amount of spare $me available, can drive and would like to give something back to those in most need, joining our group is just for you.
If you are interested in ﬁnding out more about becoming a volunteer for Helping Hands, please give David Horton a call on 01252 675348. We would love to hear from you.

Surrey Heath Age Concern would love to hear from you if you are able to help us as a volunteer driver. We have two different projects that we run and for which we are looking for help. Tea and Memories is held at our Rainbow Café in Camberley town centre on a Tuesday afternoon between 3pm and 4.30pm. We provide a lovely tea in bone china cups and delicious cakes on our cake stands This is a free event and we would love to have another driver who could bring in some older people, stay and have tea, and then take them home again afterwards. Tea and Chatter is held once a month on a Sunday afternoon and again we are looking for a couple of new volunteer drivers who could pick up one or two older people, take them to a tea party in a host’s home, stay with them for tea and then take them home again afterwards. Both of these parties are great fun and enable older people to enjoy themselves, make new friends and ease isolation and loneliness. If you feel you may be able to help as a driver for either of these events we would love to hear from you. All travel expenses will be paid plus you get a free tea!
