Once we are able to return to our usual packing process the following will apply – we’ll keep you posted!

 

Food parcel packing team members –Tuesdays 10am-11.00am and  Thursdays 10.00 am-11.30 am  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 at specific times to ensure we keep numbers to a minimum at any one time, and pack parcels ready to be delivered/collected.

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. 
 
Ad hoc food collection drivers: 
We need ad hoc food collection drivers to collect food during Harvest time, and when we run campaigns during July and December. Could you spare some time during our busy periods  to collect food from schools, companies and churches? If you can be available at short notice. We’d love to hear from you. 
 
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 assistance – can you help in our warehouse in Duke Street on Thursday mornings 9.30 am – 11.00am?  We need people that are able to lift and shift boxes of donations.  
 
Pick-up Centre volunteer- while we are experiencing the challenges of the CoronaVirus we recommend you get in touch for the latest opportunities to volunteer
 
Trustees The Board are responsible for the overall governance, monitoring and strategy of the charity.
