Last week we appealed for specific volunteers to help us tackle social isolation for particular buddies.
We’re currently working towards successfully pairing two out of the five buddies that featured in our appeal - thanks to everyone who came forward.
Based on that success, we’re asking our community to once again to help us. We’re looking for suitable volunteers for the following:
As we mentioned last Monday, we’re always looking to recruit new participants - but this week we’re appealing for specific volunteers who could help us tackle social isolation for those buddies referenced above.
If you or someone you know matches any of the descriptions outlined in the flyer, please send them our way. Should you or a potential volunteer wish to chat further, we can be contacted via Facebook Messenger, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or text: 0422 061 990
Alternatively, why not jump straight to our volunteer sign up page, found here.
A change in personal circumstances
One of last week’s new pairings came about after a volunteer contacted us with an updated address.
If you’re a waiting volunteer who’s relocated after submitting an application form, please let us know. Your new address could help us when it comes to making a match.
Get creative against the clock
This week we invite buddies to join us online for Pictionary.
Pens and paper at the ready, we’re drawing objects against the clock. To join us online this week, click on the links listed below:

To the lighthouse and back
Our bush walks continue - last Saturday (26/9) buddies headed to Watsons Bay.
Walking from the ferry terminal to Hornby Lighthouse, buddies took in plenty of blustery and unspoilt views of Sydney.

This week we welcomed two new matches to the family.
Say hello to Ben and Rodney (top, L - R) and Aleksandar and Zakka (bottom, L - R). We’re looking forward to hearing about your forthcoming adventures.
A new trio
We also prepped another three volunteers.
Thanks to Jess, Alex, Michelle (above, L - R) for coming in last Wednesday (23/9). We look forward to introducing you to your buddies.
A little extra for the weekend
In honour of Labour Day we all get the day next Monday (5/10) off, meaning there’ll be no blog. Be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages though as that’s where we’ll announce our online social offerings for the week.
