Currently, we are setting up once a month at Nyer Urness House, to provide free stationery, stamps and support with letter writing.

Interested in volunteering? - This is really the easiest volunteer assignment ever! You need to be able to read and write, and have good interpersonal skills, and be available for 2 hours once a month. If you’re unsure — come once and try it out!

Contact Bev to find out how you can help.
