Job Advert

We support a 68 yr old gentleman who has an interest in steam trains and would like to get out and visit some of the steam lines close to where he lives in Norwich.

You would support by visiting every other month and going out to visit the stations and ride the steam train, then once back you can plan the next journey. 
 
He enjoys going to the pub too so there is an option to have a drink and discuss the next time for when you will meet.
 
He is a very gentleman and a visitor wishing to make a friendship on a longer term basis would be best for him. 
 
A minimum commitment of 18 months would be preferred. 
Please see the role profile below for more information.

In addition, it is mandatory that you take a lateral flow test on the day of your volunteering.
