Life Without Barriers- Volunteer Day in Rushton Park, Kelmscott

 

Why not give your mental health a boost by committing to volunteer at Rushton Park...

Each week we hold a volunteer day in Rushton Park on the corner of River Road and Orlando Street, Kelmscott. Everyone is welcome to come along and lend a hand. We spend a couple of hours tidying up the place, picking up any litter, weeding and occasional seeding of native plants. We don’t spend the whole day working; we will have a break for a bite to eat and some games. This is a fantastic way to be part of your community. Everyone who attends will receive a Certificate of Participation

When:The group runs every Thursdays 10am-2pm.

Bring: Volunteers should bring closed in shoes, a hat and long pants. Life Without Barriers will provide sunscreen, food and drink and all safety equipment. Insurance for all volunteers is provided by City of Armadale.

If you or anyone you know would like to attend, please call, text or email each week with your name, phone number and number of volunteers for catering purposes.

This just released ground-breaking research showcased the results of a three year longitudinal study in Ireland. A team of international researchers from Spain, Denmark and Australia investigated whether Acting-Belonging-Committing prevented depression, anxiety and cognitive decline in people over 50.
