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.

For more information, contact Bernadette on 6622 0788 or email bdaley@redcross.org.au

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