Fundraising for ECHO

In 2021, we are growing our fundraising team. Making sure there are enough funds to secure the future of our work is vital. We are going to need a keen group of individuals willing to help us with the many ideas we want to develop.

ECHO Sports – Leominster

We are always keen to hear from anyone wanting to help out at our various sports clubs held during the week. Fancy badminton on a Monday? Bit of football for fitness on Thursday? New ideas are in development as we hope to extend the range on offer and encourage more engagement. Contact Nick at the ECHO office 01568 620307 for more details.

Lifelinks project, Hereford – Wednesdays

craft activities at Lifelinks

We are looking for the right person to join our team and be part of this fun project based at St Martins Church. Lifelinks helps participants take part in a variety of activities including; helping house bound people by doing their shopping for them and volunteering in the community. We also go out and about quite a bit to visit places, so a car driver is preferred. A volunteer brings an extra pair of hands to help people get the most out of their day.
