THE former Winchester and District Mencap Society is looking for volunteers to help with a new scheme.

Now known as Winchester Go LD, the group has asked for helping hands as it looks to purchase a new smoothie bike in a bid to help provide valuable training.

The charity, which supports people with learning difficulties, plans to buy the bike offering a mobile cool drinks service at numerous events throughout the summer. Members hope it will help to develop social and work-related skills, boost self-confidence and promote independence.

The bike has been funded through donations and the annual quiz night, organised by the charity’s fundraising committee.

The charity, which was re-launched with its new name in March, is based at Winchester Discovery Centre and is looking for anyone who is retired or looking for general work experience.
