Do you live in the Charfield area? If so would you be able to visit housebound service users who are unable to visit a library themselves due to either temporary or permanent disability and provide them with regular reading materials? Volunteering for South Gloucestershire Libraries, you would need a full DBS check and have access to your own transport.
