Charity calls for home support volunteers in Telford

A charity in Telford is appealing for volunteers to support people returning home from hospital.

The British Red Cross said it was looking for "compassionate" volunteers to help provide short-term care and support for people after an accident or illness.

It said the role included visiting people in their homes, shopping and taking them to appointments.

Volunteers needed to be available for a minimum of two hours a week, it said.

Those interested must be able to drive and the charity said mileage would be reimbursed.
