Weekly on Wednesdays at 4 Marlow Road from 1pm-3pm. The group provides weekly singing sessions for people with chronic lung disease, to help them better self-manage their chronic lung conditions, by teaching better breathing, correcting postural tension, building stamina, and having fun, whilst meeting people with similar conditions.
We are seeking someone who is very friendly to chat with our members, and ideally someone who is confident using their singing voice and holding a tune, as it can be very useful if someone sings strongly when we are in parts. Even better, if you are a chord instrumentalist, as it allows for the group leader to engage with the participants, rather than being behind a keyboard. You would also support with setting up and packing away for the sessions.
Our volunteers so far have been incredibly enthusiastic and are invaluable to the running of the group. We have had students who are of 6th form age, which has been great for CVs, and we have provided references for universities and DofE. There could also be the opportunity for support in fundraising if they wanted.
