We are seeking volunteers from across North Yorkshire who will help us make draught excluders for people who struggle to keep their homes warm. This campaign is part of the Warm & Well in North Yorkshire project.

When you’re ready to donate your amazing draught excluders, you can drop them off at your nearest Local Support and Development Organisation office.

Northallerton & District Voluntary Service Association has recently developed a new project for people in the Northallerton & Bedale area.
The Good Neighbour Scheme is about putting people in touch with others in the local community who may need a little assistance with day-to-day tasks. It involves spending a little time helping with one-off activities or regular tasks for neighbours needing a helping hand.
Good Neighbour Volunteers offer low-level support to neighbours in the local community who may need a little assistance with small, everyday tasks.
Volunteers can decide what sort of help they are able to offer and how much time they want to give. A small offer of help can make a big difference. For more information contact Denise Sisk on 01609 780458.
If you are holding a village fete, community event or fundraising gala and need to get your hands on a marquee, tombola, hook a duck game or even a popcorn machine then look no further…
