knows, Britain's hospitals and social services programme is vastly
understaffed, especially the less glamorous institutions such as mentally
handicapped hospitals. One such place in the north-east is Prudhoe
and Monkton Hospital which has a desperate need for more voluntary
workers. Mentally handicapped people need help from volunteers because
volunteers can give these people the extras in life that staff and
the state cannot give. So if you have any free time to devote to people
in our society who really need help from those not isolated in the
mental hospital environment, then see what you can do ... it's amazing
what a breath of fresh air from the outside world can do for the patients.
Decide how much time you can give - it can be as little as a morning
a week, and then ring Robert McCoull at Prudhoe 2501 ext 16, who will
be pleased to discuss things with you. There are a wide variety of
things to do in 365 acres of beautiful grounds with all meals and expenses
Love / peace.
