To celebrate this year's National Volunteers week (1st to 7th June) we recorded some short videos to help you get to know some local charities currently looking for volunteers. Say 'hello' to the Team Oxford Lunchtime Lounge!

They're all looking for volunteers from as little as a couple of hours per month. Check them out below and if anything sparks your interest, please get in touch. And remember, this is is a fully-funded programme so there are no costs to you.

So who did we talk to and what help do they need?
