Plea for more Colchester SOS Bus volunteers
2:03pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
A PLEA has gone out for more volunteers to staff Colchester’s SOS Bus.
Volunteers on the bus, based on the High Street every Friday and Saturday, work with pubs, clubs, the police and street pastors to help revellers and reduce late night brawls.
Open Road, the charity which runs the bus, is looking for a further 15 to 20 volunteers to spend one night a month helping out between 8.30pm and 4am.
They receive first aid training and can do a trial night before signing up.
Anyone interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01206 369782.
