Volunteers

If you need to get out for your weekly shop

Our volunteer drivers at your front door will stop

And if your legs are weak and you walk with an aid

They will help you on the bus and they don’t want paid

 

They will also take care of all your decorating needs

Cut your hedge, your grass and pull up your weeds

And for those who are elderly, isolated and alone

Our volunteers will take time to visit you at home

 

Our trustees assist with any strategic decision

Help with policies, governance and maintaining pep’s vision

And if your literacy, English and I.T. skills are few

There’s a volunteer available to help with that too

 

At the day clubs the volunteers will support you to make

Everything from dream catchers to lemon drizzle cake

To go walking in the woods and to dance in the park

With their ultimate goal to bring back your spark

 

In addition they assist with craft classes, parties and fayres

And old Jeannie Brown says “it’s good to know that somebody cares”

And after all that giving of their valuable time

They then take to the stage in the PEP pantomime

 

Oh no they don’t! ………………………………….oh yes they do!
