Being able to share a drink and a snack together is hugely important part of visiting a friend or loved one. The Tea Bar is therefore an essential service that makes the visit more comfortable and helps to provide a more relaxed environment. Volunteers serve drinks and light refreshments to visitors and take cash payment. Volunteers can be involved in a range of activities including stock control and publicity and promotion. Please note: Volunteers are required between any of the following times: Tuesday to Friday 12.30-4.30 Saturday 8am - 12noon ; 12noon - 4pm Sunday 8am - 12noon ; 12noon - 4pm
