The Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme encourages those aged 50+ to volunteer and stay active. We are looking for older people in Dunblane and the surrounding area who would like to knit items for charity and good causes.
We also hold regular coffee mornings to give volunteers the opportunity to socialise with other knitters, compare knitting projects and have a tea or coffee. The opportunity for social interaction has an overall positive effect for older people’s health and well-being.
Over 50 years of age and enjoy knitting
