    Urgent appeal for Volunteers

    - by rootadmn

    U R G E N T!

    Volunteer Stewards & Cleaners for Sunday Masses. It will be wonderful if volunteers came forward to help at ALL Sunday Masses (starting from 6th Dec 2nd Sunday of Advent). We need stewards for supervising track and trace and cleaners. So far there has not been much response and too few people are doing too much. These are not difficult jobs so please offer your help, before or after Mass, we ask you for 15 to 20 minutes. Help is needed at All Souls Saturday evening and most Masses on Sunday & at Our Lady of Lourdes Sunday 9.15 am. Please email or ring the parish office as to which Mass you would like to help out at. We need to organize this well before we open again. Stewarding, track and trace & cleaning are mandatory not optional. Time is running out and most of the masses are not covered.
    Please see the rota below. I will look forward to hearing from you. 01733562528 parishoffice@stpeterandallsouls.org.uk

    Visiting Support Service for Older People in Peterborough.

    Age UK have identified the significant need for additional support to be made available to older people in Peterborough, we are therefore able to provide free extra assistance for those over 65 in Peterborough when they need it most; particularly when they are experiencing a difficult period, such as bereavement, ill health, financial worries or housing concerns. We listen to your thoughts and wishes and together we will plan a desired outcome that helps you to access the services and support networks you need. Our Visiting Support Service for Older People (VSSOP) enables older people to stay independent and maintain health and wellbeing, by providing a service that meets individual need.

    We can assist with forms, benefits, blue badges, organise bills, and assist with housing choices. If someone has a caring role we can support with this. The service can adapt to individual changing needs such as aids and equipment and falls prevention support. We also can also offer information about social opportunities and how you might access them. The team will decide if support can be given over the phone or if a home visit is needed, staff will have full PPE and socially distance. For more information or support please contact:

    01354-776110 or email vssop@ageukcap.org.uk
