Volunteer opportunities are below. If you would like to chat about any of the roles, email us:  onecan@live.co.uk, call our project manager Steph on 01494-512-277 or use our contact page.

Food parcel packing team members – Thursdays 10.30am-12.00pm  If you can spare a few hours weekly or fortnightly, we’d love you to join our pick and pack team. The team meets at our store and pack parcels ready to be delivered/collected. We currently have a full team of packers. But please check back regularly as opportunities may arise. 

Drivers – Thursday morning 10.30am-11.30am We need drivers to be available to deliver food parcels to clients’ homes and to pick up centres. If you can help every week, brilliant, otherwise we’d love to hear from you if you could help once or twice a month. 

Drivers – food donation collectors – at your convenience. We also need drivers who would like to pop to the supermarkets and collect the generous donations popped in our collecting bins by shoppers. The more we empty the bins, the quicker they fill! You can do this job at your own convenience as part of a team going once every few weeks, or more frequently if that suits you. We currently have a full team of food collection drivers. 
 
Cleaner – could you spare an hour or two a week to tidy and clean our food store and office? Sweeping, emptying bins, keeping everything safe and clean for our volunteers. All materials would be provided.
 
Warehouse assistant: can you help in our warehouse in Duke Street on Thursday mornings 9.30 am – 11.00am?
 
Trustees We would love to extend our Board of Trustees. The Board are responsible for the overall governance, monitoring and strategy of the charity. The people on the board work the project manager and volunteers to ensure that the charity fulfils its objectives and acts in accordance with the charity’s vision and mission, and in compliance with all legal and regulatory requirements.
 
We’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in hearing more about the Trustee role.
 
We’re especially looking for people who would like to look after the area of Volunteers and Supporters. Do get in touch for an informal chat. All the above roles are volunteer positions. Reasonable expenses will be paid.
