Whether it’s a trip into Bedford town centre to enjoy a wander down the river, a cup of tea and a cake in the local cafes, a visit to the library, or leisure activities, the cinema, trips to discos or even a little bit further afield. If you can commit to volunteering with us once or twice a week during the day or in the evening we’d love to hear from you!
