Artworks, which is run by Cambridgeshire charity Eddie’s, needs volunteers for their group sessions on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Activities include painting, paper mache, jewellery making, sewing, drama and singing. The group puts together two shows each year for family and friends.

Suzanne Lombardo, of Eddie’s, said: “Together with the arts tutor, volunteers will help group members to increase their self confidence and improve their communication skills.

“It also offers people the chance to socialise, learn to work in a team and build new friendship groups.
