A charity supporting people with learning difficulties and their families is looking for volunteers.
Maidenhead Mencap, based at Highview in North Road, would like to hear from anyone who could help out with its Saturday morning club for youngsters, which takes place from 10am-12pm.
Charity chairman John Foulger is hoping to find people with good organisational skills, including someone willing to take responsibility for rotas and escorting children travelling on the organisation's minibus.
Experience of helping children with learning difficulties would be useful.
Contact John on 01628 631208 or Catherine Ward on 01494 880047 for details.
The charity is also holding a fundraising concert on Saturday, April 27, at St Luke's Church in Norfolk Road.
Ascot Brass and Highfield Preparatory School choir are set to perform at the event, which starts at 7pm.
Entry costs £10 or £8 concessions.
Mencap, which had its AGM on Thursday last week produces a regular newsletter providing updates on its work.
Call Valerie Bosley on 01628 630622 to sign up.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
