Thumbs Up are looking for volunteers to come and join our team to help out with various activities. We have 25 adults from within the Hutt Valley with intellectual disabilities who are able to take part in numerous activities that they would otherwise struggle to do. Things like sailing with Sailability ( http://sailability-wellington.org.nz/), swimming in the Hydrotherapy pool at Huia Pool(http://www.huttcity.govt.nz/pools-fitness/huia/ ), going to the gym (http://www.jenkinsgym.co.nz/), going to Menz Shed (http://menzshed.org.nz/menz-shed-naenae/), and in-house Drama group, a walking group and music sessions to name a few.
Thumbs Up is all about building relationships and community involvement. Do you think that you would like to help out with any of these activities? Are you wanting to join a group of fun adults and have fun while making a real difference in people’s lives? Or do you have any other skills/activities that you are passionate about that you would like to share ? If so, we would love to hear from you! Please get in touch with with the Thumbs Up Volunteer Coordinator Jill Westenra
