Vintage Vibes looking for volunteers

Got the below from Vintage Vibes so anyone interested please see contact details at the bottom...

 Dear Cllr Wilson,


I hope that this finds you well and that you're having a good week.


My name is Georgia Artus and I work for Edinburgh charitable partnership, Vintage Vibes. We tackle isolation in older people in Edinburgh through creating long lasting friendships based on shared interests.


The reason I'm getting in touch is because we've been recruiting for volunteers in the Gorgie over the past couple of months and we currently have more volunteers than isolated older people (over 60s) in the Gorgie area.


In addition, we are about to outreach for volunteers in the Broomhouse/Sighthill area and we anticipate the same situation occurring. 


We're looking to increase the number of referrals we receive surrounding isolated older people in and around the Gorgie/Broomhouse/Sighthill areas.


Would you perhaps be able to help us spread the word that we are currently open for referrals from Gorgie/Broomhouse/Sighthill?


If you need any more information please don't hesitate to let me know. 


Many thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
