Charity issues plea for more volunteers

Published on: 23 Jun 2017


A CHARITY that supports struggling families wth small children in Bristol and South Gloucestershire is looking for more volunteers.

Home-Start Bristol, which has just celebrated its 30th anniversary, helps parents by making regular home visits. Volunteers are all parents themselves and they are given training by the charity.

Guest of honour at the party to mark three decades was Sheila Fielden, one of the first volunteers in the city. Her daughter Alex now works for the charity as a co-ordinator.

Scheme manager Beverley Symonds said: “We wanted to do something wonderful for our families to mark Home Start Bristol’s 30th birthday, and there’s nothing more special than seeing volunteers and families, past and present, coming together for one big celebration.”

Home-Start Bristol’s next volunteer preparation course starts on Tuesday, September 19. For more information, call 0117 950 1170 or visit
