    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:Dont drag your feet! Join our fantastic team of committed Volunteers who come from all 'walks' of life and volunteer for lots of different reasons.
    You will be helping some of the thousands of Fifers who struggle to cut and file their own toenails for numerous reasons and need some simple assistance with this as well as applying cream to their feet and ankles afterwards.
    No experience necessary, all the training and support you will need is provided. Our sessions are friendly and informal and take place in lots of locations across Fife. If you can you commit three hours or more at least twice a month, we will find the venue nearby, train and support you all the way.
    Quote from our website: I enjoy helping people and this has given me that opportunity, I have made lots of friends on my journey and I hope I have made a difference to many people.
