People still have time to volunteer for a summer playscheme programme.

The Hartlepool Special Needs Support Group, based in Park Road, will once again hold its popular summer programme between Monday, July 20, and Friday, August 7.

But to run the scheme, organisers must find between 20 and 30 volunteers who can give up time.

Volunteers must come forward by Wednesday, June 3.

The Mail first featured the group’s plea for help last week and manager and co-ordinator Pat Allison said they had started receiving calls. ut more volunteers, aged at least 17, are needed.

They must like children and young adults, have lots of energy, be caring, honest, reliable and have common sense.

They will be involved in activities such as playing, swimming, group sessions, meeting people and having fun.
