|Name:||Cinema Club Escort|
|Organisation:||Leonard Cheshire - Birnbeck House|
|Location:||2 St Paul's Road, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 4AF|
We are looking for someone to escort our residents to go to the cinema in Weston-super-Mare. Ideally once a week. You would meet our resident at Quantock House, Quantock Road to Walliscote Road, Weston super-Mare.
You will then join our support staff and residents either board the mini-bus or walk to the cinema. You will talk to participants about the film you are about to see, and maybe discuss the last film they had seen.
You will accompany residents into the cinema, helping them choose their refreshments and help them to find the correct screen and seat. We will pay for your cinema ticket. Once the film is over, you will help participants back to the mini-bus or walk with them back to the resident’s home. We ask that you commit to one cinema trip each month. Cinema trips tend to be in the afternoon.
