    Do you need extra volunteers?
    Are you only interested in help from those living in Coddenham?

    • Bliss Marshall

      Marlene we always welcome new individuals to volunteer and always very thankful for any extra help! And no the volunteers don’t need to be based in Coddenham, as long as we are accessable!
      Any other comments or queries please don’t hesitate to email the manager or give us a call on or 01449 760313. Thankyou!
