Scheme needs retired workers

A VOLUNTEER charity is calling on recently-retired people in Sheffield to use their new-found free time to help others.

The organisation Community Service Volunteers wants to recruit people in the city to take part in its latest campaign, called The Professionals. Retired men and women with experience in areas such as management, ICT, law, fundraising, recruitment and other areas are being asked to invest their skills to benefit their communities. Volunteers will be matched with local organisations who need help.

CSV boss Lucy de Groot said: “Giving time to a local charity can be a rewarding way to regain a sense of purpose and reconnect with people in your area.”
