Red Cross in the Northern Rivers region is calling for volunteers to help deliver its Telecross service.

Telecross is a service where older people living alone are given a reassuring phone call each day to check that they are safe and well.

Interested people are invited to attend a 30-minute information session at the Red Cross Regional Centre, 130 Keen Street, Lismore, at 10.30am on Monday, February 16.

Last year Red Cross volunteers made more than one million calls to more than 4000 Telecross clients.
