Horsell Snow Angels is a volunteer-run service for the elderly or those with less mobility (including those with young children) during winter months. We operate only when it snows or is particularly icy.
The number to call for anyone who needs help in the GU21 4... postcode area, is 01483 380025. Calls to this number will be answered by a volunteer member of the organising team.
You can call upon our volunteers for basic errands when you don't want to risk going outside because you're unstable on your feet, or don't want to take any unnecessary risks. Our aim is to reduce the strain on the local NHS by avoiding falls and trips, and to help people to remain independent in their own homes.
Jobs that our volunteers can do include small amounts of shopping (up to £10), dog walking (for those happy with dogs), prescription collection, and small amounts of snow clearance (for those able and willing). Our volunteers don't use cars. All the activities we ask volunteers to do are fully insured.
On snowy or icy days, Snow Angels sends a text message to all volunteers (over 100 in the village) to establish their availability. Usually there are 30-50 volunteers available on any day, so we have plenty of capacity to meet requests.
Tell your friends and neighbours who might need the service - Snow Angels will be live in Horsell this year when it snows or is icy.
