Meet the Community Lottery family – South Staffordshire Council
Click here to meet the new lottery family. These cheeky balls are set to bring some lottery fun over coming months, so you’ll be seeing a lot more of these delightful characters. Sadly though, the balls have joined us with no names. If you’d like to suggest a name, simply tell us the number of the ball and the name. If you name is chosen, we’ll give you a free lottery play for two weekly draws. Closing date is Sunday 26 January 2020 at 9pm. Please forward any suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wombourne Volunteer Bureau
Wombourne Volunteer Bureau provides a much loved and valued service for the community.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
We run a transport service for people to medical appointments of any kind, stay with the patient whilst they wait and assist them moving around if needed. We even provide a wheelchair for patients who require one.
Four days a week we cook meals in our 5* hygeine rated kitchens. The peope who come are usually elderly and come for a variety of reasons. If you wish to avail yourself of this service contact us and enjoy a two course meal, and good company for only £3.
We provide a medical supply hiring service. People can hire such items as wheelchairs, commodes, walkers from us. If they are needed permanently, we sell you them at a knock down price. Our equipment is maintained by our trained engineer.
We act as a drop in centre, always feel free to pop in and have a coffee/tea with us. A warm welcome is always given.
Finally, we run a coffee morning/jumble sale on the last Saturday of each month (not December!) starting at 10:15. We would love to see you there!
Thank you for your support and good luck!
