GroceryAid on the hunt for volunteers

first_imgGroceryAid, the trading name of the National Grocers’ Benevolent Fund (NGBF), is searching for volunteers to help with its welfare work.The company is seeking volunteers, who have some spare time on their hands, to help somebody in need.Those who put themselves forward will receive professional training, regular support to fulfil their duties and will be paid expenses.Cathy Mercer, welfare development director said: “We currently have 62 volunteer welfare assessors who work around the UK providing assistance to our beneficiaries. The feedback we receive from our beneficiaries is incredibly heart-warming and shows how much they appreciate the work our volunteers do. We’re extremely grateful for everything they do for us.”Welfare assessors are the ‘front line’ of the charity and without the input, GroceryAid would be unaware of the real needs of the beneficiaries. The recommendations of welfare assessors can often result in beneficiaries receiving basic household items such as fridges, cookers and beds, as well as emergency grants to help with items such as leaking roofs or boiler repairs.Find out more from their website: groceryaid.org.uk.In July, Grocery Aid spent £4.3m on welfare projects, according to its end-of- year financial results.last_img read more

Torres set for spell out

first_img Mourinho said: “It’s time for Demba. It’s a pity because Nando (Torres) is in a good moment, but it’s time for Demba. “Demba had a fantastic week; (it was) very difficult for me to leave him out of selection because he worked very, very well. “Next matches is for Demba or Samuel. Let’s go.” The Spain striker, who scored at Southampton and Hull earlier this month, came on as a late substitute for hat-trick hero Samuel Eto’o but did not last the distance due to a damage to his lateral knee ligament which means he faces “weeks” out. Demba Ba will be given an opportunity in Torres’ absence, Mourinho insisted. Fernando Torres faces a spell out with a knee injury sustained in Chelsea’s win over Manchester United on Sunday, Blues boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
